    I would wager a guess of 8-11 a day given the ratio I get. Out of my 10 layers I am averaging on a 30 day run 8.05 eggs a day. Today got 9 as well as yesterday,for 3 days prior got 7 and before that 6. only 3 times have I got 10 out of 10. There are so many factors to figure in,like stress,heat,feed and countless other things. But over all I am happy with 8 a day. Even over the winter my avg. was about 7.35 eggs a day over a 30 day period.
