    I got 612 eggs in October. [​IMG] I was averaging 22 eggs per day, with a range from 19 to 26. But as daylight keeps getting shorter towards the end of month it was dropping to more like 17 to 22. It no doubt will keep dropping as winter comes on.

    Lets see: My DW eats 4 every morning for breakfast thats 4 X 31 = 124. I eat two for lunch on my ham and cheese sandwich every day but Thursday when we go out for lunch or 27 X 2 = 54 and I eat 5 every Sunday night for dinner of 5 X5 = 25. Plus we gave our younger daughter 3 dozen last weekend when she was home and now have 9 dozen in the refrigerator plus an extra 3 on the counter (12 X 12 = 144 + 3 = 147. If I figured correctly that's 350 eggs not counting the 2 I dropped.

    ETA: I might point out that I have only had 10 chickens laying all month but my 26 Black Star pullets have been gradually coming into production since the middle of the month (May 29th hatch) and most of the eggs I eat are the small pullet eggs.
