    My barred rock started laying and i've had 4 eggs in 4 days, Isn't she supposed to take a day off now and then? I wasn't expecting such "regularity" [​IMG]

    My younger layers usual lay 5-6 per week and barred rocks are good layers. 4 in a row is good and normal.

    Imp- You'd get good money if you could train her to teach other hens to lay like that. [​IMG]

    don't be surprised if she does take a day off. For me the ironic part is when I want more eggs I get less and when I don't care (or want less) I get more. Congrats on eggs vs days [​IMG] or maybe the hen needs a big [​IMG]
