Hi folks,
I'm working on my biology master's degree and have to do a bio-stats project this term.
I had the idea of seeing if there is a relationship between egg laying and the amount of natural daylight using stastical analysis.

I hoping that I can get some data from from other areas of the country to lessen any bias of the analysis. That's where you can help me. If you do not have artificial light in your coop and count the number of eggs you get each day, I can use that information if you are willing to share your egg count for the next 8-10 weeks. I can calculate the hours of natural daylight at your location just using the city where you live in the US or the lat/long if you are outside the US.

If you would like to help, you can PM me or reply here.

Thank you.

Any starting point would be fine. Each data point is unique and when combined with the others helps to lessen any bias within the analysis.

Thank you.

We have been keeping track since the beginning of the year for my daughters 4h record book. I can certainly help you out. We are tracking total number of eggs per day as well as can tell you specifically how many per week 4 certain chickens lay because I can tell their egg colors apart.

She just has it written in a calendar atm, but i can throw it in an excel sheet for you and email....just let me know your address.

Thank you, my e-mail is [email protected]
Would you also tell me your city, state? That way I can calculate the hours of daylight for your area.
NOTE: No addresses will be used, just the daylight time.
Thanks again, Randy Z.

I would love to help! I have four girls laying right now, three sporadically and one on a frequent basis. I'll update you as often as I can on this, or for as long as you need. I'm in West Valley, Utah, but you can probably just use Salt Lake City, since it's in the same area.

So, I'll start with yesterday:

Barred Rock: 1 egg

Silver Laced Wyandotte: 0 eggs

Marans: 0 eggs

White Leghorn: 0 eggs

I try to keep a close eye on them to make sure none of them are hiding any from me, since they free range every day. The BR is my frequenter.

Thank you. I see that you had 9 hours and 30 minutes of day light yesterday. Thanks, RedIII
