    Well,

    I've got 21 hens, and about 16 lay. I decided that I would record every egg I get this month and see how many I wind up with! If every laying hen was to lay an egg a day, I would get 496 eggs. I dont think I did too bad! I got my final count today and wound up with 335 eggs this month. Those NNs sure are good layers!


    My chart.

    I think more people should try this! Im going to try it next month just to see the difference. I might actually do it every month, its fun to see what you get!

    I keep trying to turn the chart the right way but it wont work!! * I got it!*

    I find it very interesting that December and January were your best months.

    Quote:Yeah, but, then they got sick of winter! Now with one hen not laying it sure shows in the numbers.
