This might be a silly question, but I've talked with a few friends that keep chickens and they get about an egg a day from each chicken. I'm not sure of the breed of their chickens, but I know they were purchased as chicks from one of those big chick-selling outfits. I think I may have accidentally bred egg laying out of my flock! Is this even possible after 2 years? I have about 40 pullets/hens and I get about 15 eggs a day! Granted a few are about two or three years old, but the vast majority are 1 year old or were hatched this spring (> 6 months old). Other than potential poor breeding...am I doing something wrong? Is this normal for a barnyard flock? I promise everybody is happy and healthy. I really can't comment on their breed because it's all mixed up...I think there is some RIR in there, we had a Dominique rooster this spring (so he's the dad of several pullets), and my current rooster is a Lavender Ameraucana (he's probably the father of about 15 or so pullets). Any thoughts would be appreciated.
