    Egg number 10 was a double yolk yesterday and number 11 today looks to be the same. I am so proud of my girl.

    What kind of Hen IS that, with such HUGE Brown Eggs ?!?
    I am new, and looking for the most productive Brown Egg layer there is, got any tips for a n44b Hen Wrangler ?

    Production reds (ISA red, red sex link) are the most productive that I know of. Wonderful brown eggs almost every day. I have 35 hens and I get 30-34 eggs a day.

    My BR pullet laid a huge double yoker for her 5th egg. Bigger than the store bought ones. barely fits in the egg container.

    My girl didn't lay today. Two double yolk eggs back to back...she deserves the rest. Rainbow is a black sex-linked hen.

    Rainbow is a black sex-linked hen. She has layed everyday at 3 o'clock....except today. I guess she is exhausted..ha.
