    We go through at least an 18 pack every week. Sometimes we go through an 18 pack and a half in the week.

    It will be nice not to buy store bought eggs.[​IMG] My 22 week girls are due to lay any day now!

    *edit to add... We are a family of 5.[​IMG]

    We eat an 18 pack a week too. Our 6 hens give us that a week, plus hatching eggs, plus eggs to give to all our family and friends. They lay 1 to 2 a day every day.
