    Seeing the different personalities of my chickens makes me feel sorry for all of those birds in commercial "concentration camps" who spend all of their time cramped in a tiny cage with 5 others fighting for a turn at the water nipple and watching their feed stroll by on a conveyor belt. Your hens are laying a great amount of eggs which means they are healthy and happy. A commercial egg farm will get 500,000 eggs a day from 3 million chickens. That's one egg per day for every 6 chickens. Makes you wonder. Are you planning on expanding your flock yet? It sounds like you provide an excellent home for your birds.
