    I know there was a post a while back about giving fruit to chickens.
    Well, I gave my girls 2 orange halves yesterday. They pecked them down to the peel and today...I got 4 eggs from 3 hens!
    3 Medium/Large and 1 Jumbo!! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] So cool!!!

    I gave my girls worms today, and cheese and bread and apple core and peel............... I certainly hope they give me 4 eggs tomorrow! (I have 8 standards - don't know WHO is laying and who isn't 4 eggs in one day the record) [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm happy for you two, sad for me. I got two eggs yesterday from 6 standards; I haven't gotten more than 1 the same day in many weeks now. I'm not expecting ANY today. [​IMG]

    I think I need some Dorkings.

    How old are they Wynette?

    I have 8 standards and 3 bantam hens - so I'm getting 3 eggs a day on average from 11 hens - so don't feel bad! [​IMG]
