We have 4 people in our family and we love to use eggs. Cakes, omlettes. We have bantams, beacoup de bantam! I am wanting some layers to just keep from spending so much on eggs and not having the joy of orange yolks and raising the girls myself. So yeah, do you think 8 hens would do it? We have a Andalusion, Lakevelder, and planning on the rest being EEs.
