    Zero so far today. But I only have four hens and only one just started laying on Friday. Since then I've had 3 eggs. Just waiting on that 4th egg so we can have a meal. :)

    I only have 4 chickens with only one laying right now....so I got one egg today. She's pretty consistant and lays one egg almost every day. [​IMG]

    My EE is 7 months old now and a real slacker. No egg from her yet.

    thats why I sold all my bantams and majority of my EE's ... they to slow in laying and eggs are not very big . They were giving me heart failure . [​IMG]

    I would sell her if she wasn't my favorite. She's just too cute. I'll give her a few more months...and hopefully she will lay something!
    My daughter named her "Daisy" and I just call her Slacker. [​IMG]
