    Wow, that's a lot of eggs!

    I have only five hens and can't imagine counting. With my girls, it was more like "one, two, three, four, OH MY GOODNESS THEY'RE OUT OF CONTROL!!!"

    Either that, or I'm like the rabbits in "Watership Down" and can't count past five.

    Have you had any Full Egg Days when every hen laid an egg?
