I don’t know about anyone else, but my flock is doing ok this summer as far as egg production. I have 7 RIR that are laying, one Speckled Sussex, one Silkie, and 2 PR that also should all be laying. That’s 11. Plus I have several pullets that I think lay every other day or so. Plus I have 5 ducks that should also be laying. Yesterday I got 9 chicken and 4 duck eggs. Which is about the average. And I have a feeling that there are nests I haven’t found. I know this because yesterday while moving some stuff around outside the coop I found a nest of 5 duck eggs. And one of them was just monstrous!
I save the shells through out the year too, for making cascarones for Easter. So you can imagine the stock pile of eggs I have! I will include pictures.

Yes! Surprisingly, the heat is not effecting my chickens for some reason! I give the egg-stras to my neighbors. It makes them so happy to have fresh colorful eggs!
