    My girls love, love hard boiled eggs. As soon as I go into their coop they are going over to their special "treat-area" waiting for thier anticipated egg. However, now that they are bigger (I never knew a living being could grow so fast!), how many eggs should I give them per day?

    I have a total of 13, 5 weekers. I have been giving them 2 a day for a about a week, but the eggs are gone w/in a matter of seconds. Can I give them more? I just don't want them to get the poos or anything [​IMG]

    TIA! Mandy

    One per hen every week is perfect. [​IMG]
