    Lets we currently have 3 LAYING hens (one has suffered a trauma, we dont know if she'll ever lay again) and we dont get that many eggs from them currently. Maybe like 3 per week, each. In the spring we are getting 6 new chickens. Here are our breeds:
    1 Rhode Island Red
    1 Buff Orp
    1 Black Australorp
    1 Ameracauna
    1 Leghorn
    1 Cochin
    1 Dorking
    1 Cuckoo Marans
    1 Silver Laced Wyandotte
    1 Sultan

    How many eggs will we get?? Estimates, please. Thanks!! [​IMG]

    Well one would hope you'd get 6 out of the group on average. Once the days grow longer and the birds get warmed up and eating bugs and greens you should get a half a dozen I would think.
