How many eggs do your Polish lay?

    I have four buff laced polish that hatched in August.
    They started to lay about a month ago. I thought they would only lay about 2 eggs a week, but I am getting 2 eggs a day! [​IMG] They are cute little white eggs, I just wondered if this was normal.
    I am not complaining, just wondering if anyone else has this luck.

    I have 11 and I get 6-9 eggs a day! I thought they would lay less than this as well. Pleasantly surprised!

    Hi,

    I have a Polish and she lays two days in a row and then not for one day and repeats the same cycle. So about 4 to 5 eggs a week. I'm happy with that! Genie

    CritterHill, where in PA are you? Your flock is lovely!


    My girl lays pretty well for a Polish. She isn't at all a consistant layer, but in the Winter she can continue laying for a few days straight! Not bad for a non-Winter bird! Her eggs are pretty big, too!

    My year olds lay an egg a day, March to about October. The two and three year olds lay about 5 eggs each a week, so they skip a couple of days a week.
