    well i dont really know whats going on with my 6 ladies and the egg count lately. i switched brands of layer crumbs i was feeding layena and went to tsc dumor layer, on wednesday of last week.

    they get to free range about two hours a day or more most days,

    on friday i got 5 eggs and then ever since been getting 6 that makes 29 in 5 days my best ever... befor i would get constent 4 eggs a day and maybe gat 5 twice in a week.

    really cant explain why but sure am looking out to see what happens to come in the next week or two

    is switching food the cause of this?
    has this ever hapened to anyone?
    will it last of fade away?
    if it fades away do i switch foods again hoping for same results?
    or am i just really lucky the past couple days?
    or just plain nuts?

    Could be the feed change. Could be the new feed is just fresher. You never know how old some of that bagged feed really is.
