    SO I am patiently awaiting my girls first eggs but I was wondering if anyone can tell me on average how many eggs/hen you get with a Barred Rock? I have 3 girls so I am hoping for like 3 a week/bird? Is that right? What is y'alls average for a BR?

    I don't know how many eggs BR's lay on a weekly basis, but yearly I have seen/heard estimates of 170 to 220 yearly, so that would average 3 to 4 eggs a week.

    I have 7 BRs they are 20 weeks old and only one has given me 1 egg so far. I hope they give 4 a week... that would give me 28/ week.

    I do not have a BR, I have a silkie laying and I was told about 3 a week... she's laid about 5 a week religiously and last week gave me 7 straight days! I would say if you are content with 3, you'll probably get more. I've heard they would give more then a Banty would.

    I only have one bird laying so far [​IMG] , and it is a BR. She started about a month ago, and we have gotten an egg every day for the last 17 days or so. I expect her to be taking a day off soon.
