Good morning all. First let me say that I LOVE this site. I have become a little addicted! I have one roo who is what I think is a Jersey Giant and one hen to match him. Also 3 Barred rock hens, 3 Buff orpington, 2 easter eggers and 2 what I think is hubbard browns. All are hens except the one roo. My father in law and I got ours at the same time from the same order. He has 14 hens all of the same breeds as mine except he has no roo. They were born on Febuary 14. (How sweet!). They began laying on the exact same day. I have been getting one to two eggs a day. He was getting one a day but all of a sudden he is getting 5 or six a day. I am still stuck at one to two a day. The only diffrence in our hens is I give mine treats. They get the same feed, since I buy it all from our local co-op. I have given my girls and roo watermelon (so hot here), cabbage, carrotts, lettuce greens and grapes. Also I give them grass every day. Am I just being paranoid? They are the same hens with the same diet except for the treats. I was hoping by giving them treats every day I was bribbing them into more eggs! Ha Ha But really - I am a newbie to this whole thing. I am not slowing their egg production down with all the extra treats am I? Thanks for all of the advice in advance.
