. My first dozen eggs from my 6 leghorns. Been getting 6 a day from them.
Leghorns are great reliable layers, they should produce well for you.
BUT...I only see 10...breakfast already?
I'm so excited! We got our first egg 2 days ago. Our girls are only 16 weeks old. We haven't even gotten the dividers in our nesting boxes yet because we thought we had a couple more weeks. So that's on the to do list this weekend. Still waiting for our 2nd one. Any ideas on when that could be?
Haha. Yup. Wayyyyy better than store bought.
I think it depends on the chicken breed on how fast they lay. Mine are leghorns and they usually lay once a day. I've been getting 6 a day. For some reason all 6 of ours use the same box.
Thanks! We ended up getting another one 3 days later (the 13th) then 1 on the 14th, 16th and 2 today!! The last 3 have all been in the nesting box. It's fun going out to check every day.
Typical......sometimes that can be a problem, sometimes it is not.
Put some fake eggs/golf balls in some of the other nests to 'spread the love'.
