    I still have four months to go before our 4 chickens start laying. How many eggs should I expect a day? I'm trying to decide if I should add chickens to make a little flock?

    What breeds are they? Some breeds only lay 2 to 3 eggs a week, some more.

    2 New Hampshire Reds, 1 Black Australorp and 1 California White. I am hoping to purchase 2 Barred Rock and 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes this weekend. Which breed are the best layers?
