    Hi all,
    I'm sorry I asked this question awhile back and never really got an answer.
    1 ) if you have a high production bird how many eggs should you expect a week
    2 ) same with medium production.
    I was getting 5 eggs a week from my buff orp but it has gone up to 6 is that really really good for a medium production bird? or is that the average yo expect for a medium. and should I expect 7 eggs every week from my high production hens?or is it more like 6 eggs from them.
    is there a guide somewhere that says about high/medium production?

    Also the BYC chicken breeds page tells you about size color & frequency of egglaying!
