    How many days in a row do your girls usually lay? I thought that they would lay for several days and then take a break for one. My first layer (a BR), has laid an egg every day for the last 1.5months. I thought for sure she would be skipping days here and there, but it hasn't happened!

    Edited for spelling

    That's a hard working BR.

    Wow! That's wonderful! I can't tell you how many days mine lay because I have 9 that have started to lay now. On the average, I get 6 to 9 eggs a day now with a nice sized double yolker in the bunch at least once a week. [​IMG]

    Actually, I'm thinking about registering as a Democrat.

    That way, when I die, there will be one less of those _________!

    Glad were done with all of this political stuff for today. It's dark outside, but I think I'll go and hug my chickens... the Republicans ones that lay and even the other ones that just eat feed and don't produce.... yet. [​IMG]

    (If they haven't layed by the first Tuesday in November, I'm sending them to the freezer for later use in the pot!)[​IMG]
