Quote:17 to 19 eggs??? thats it? just 17-19???thats nothing... my hen lay 4-500 eggs at every laying I'm assuming that the poster meant she would lay 17-19 eggs and then go broody. Well, that would make her a really bad layer. I don't think I would want a chicken who would go broody every 19 eggs. And, it's not as funny, even though that probably is what they meant.
