    Those are beautiful! How many hens do you have to gather that many eggs? Are they all from one day?

    Alice, those are GORGEOUS!!! Such a beautiful variety of colors. All I'm getting each day are 2 white duck eggs, and 2 light brown from a red sex-link and maybe an orp mix. SAD!
    But thank you for sharing your beautiful eggs with us!

    Quote:Thank you! There are from about 13-15 laying hens (including the one pure Ameraucana pullet). There are about 48-50 eggs in that basket (and some strategically placed towels [​IMG] ), so "in theory" it'd be about 4-5 days, but more like a week and a half if you're only picking out the pretty ones! Normally, we sell just about every one as soon as they are laid for eating to co-workers but with the holiday break, we were able to stockpile a good supply! [​IMG]

    Quote:My girls slowed down when we started to get less light for winter (i.e. 3 eggs every other day from 12 hens), but we purchased a cheap timer and a bulb which increased their productivity like you wouldn't believe! I highly recommend installing such a set-up (as long as it's fire safe of course!)

    Quote:Thank you! We've been really working on the colors with our pure and mixed breeds and hope to have hatching eggs for sale within the month. Even the poorest Marans color is something our eating egg customers have never seen and can really boost sales.

    I would LOVE to get some ducks in the future - probably Cayugas to get even more variety!

    Cejunes - those blues look lovely!! You must be a proud momma!

    I think it is one of the most beautiful baskets of eggs I have ever seen. I love the variety of colours and sizes.
    I have only cream, white and brown eggs, and over here folk tend to like boring light brown eggs.

    I sooo wanted blue or green egg laying hens but had to give away my Cream Legbar Rooster. I think there is very little chance of getting an Olive egger for a while yet?

    Oesdog - made my day looking at your basket!!!!!!!! [​IMG]
