How many eggs do I get a day if I buy ...
5 egg laying pullets?
10 egg laying pullets?
15 egg laying pullets?

I am thinking of getting a mixture of rhode island reds and ameraucanas.
Will each hen lay at least one egg a day?
Is it true that as they get older , the hens lay a lower amount of eggs?

If they are not of super egg production breeds 5 a week per bird should be a very safe estimate.

Yes, as a hen gets older they will lay less and less eggs. The eggs though will get larger. I have 6 hens (I dont think they are all laying) and I get between 2-4 eggs a day. That being said, my family of four gets plentyful from them but we dont eat huge amounts. I currently have 14 eggs in the fridge

How the heck do you pick up a shell-less let alone get to eat it?
How did you wash it? Curiosity has got the better of me. Please tell.
