Hello, this is the first time I've had chickens that laid eggs. I use to have 4, but one of the RIRs killed itself. Odd death. I have 3 left and they are laying everday. I have not collected in 3 or 4 days and I just collected 19 eggs! My chickens run free and go to bed in their coop, like they should at night. I have 2 guineas and they protect them, and they are very loud. I have 1 RIR 2 dominickers.
