    How many eggs did you get last year from your flock. My flock fluctuated from 6 to 12 hens this past year. I started my flock Jan. 3, 2010 with 6 adult hens that have since passed and added 11 new layers last spring. I've kept track of how many eggs I've gotten from my flock all year and my total is 1478 eggs, now that's alot of omelets! How many eggs did you get in 2010? [​IMG]

    This is our first year and finally today our 6th and final girl laid an egg. So there wasnt anything to keep track of until recently.

    last week: 20
    week prior: 22
    week prior: 12 (frigid cold here)
    week prior: 14
    week prior: 14


    so that is 85 plus the 3 we got today! Not bad for the last 5 weeks of the year.

    2 EE, 1 RIR, 1 BSL, 2 frizzles--just started laying Christmas, got 3 eggs in the last week

    We had about 7300 this year and we have 60 layers. Some of them didn't start laying until July... recently I have been getting between 28-32 eggs a day after their molt. We are getting 30 replacement chicks next month to replace some of our non-producers and to fill in where we lost a few girls over the past two years. I am replacing cornishes with leghorns, red and black stars, Jersey giants, a few blue cochins and a few cuckoo marans.... I also have Australorps, orpingtons, EE's, RIR's, welsummers, partridge rocks and a few different wyandottes.

    [​IMG] Yes I sell most of them, and I give some to the hungry through my church... This is our third year and the egg business has grown very well just by word of mouth... I am hatching some silkies right now just for fun and this summer we are going to raise some turkey poults(people have been requesting them for the fall) and runner ducks (mostly because I am fascinated by them) but I have had people ask for duck eggs [​IMG]

    Let's see here, looking at my trusty daily scratches on last years calender...

    303 less the 7 Jan 1st so 196 eggs for the girls, for me I mean.

    Ginger was late in coming and still a bit sporatic in her first 3 weeks.
