    Personally? Like 12 buff leghorn hens and 2 buff leghorn roos. My family has about 30 birds that are Cornish, Cochin cross, and mixes. Then we also have two male and two female Swedish blue ducks and 4 mixed ducks.

    If you bother with a chicken who is laying a egg will it affect the egg? Today LOTS of my chickens are laying so I had to have them each in their own nesting box so I moved them around, picked them up and put them each in their own nesting box. When I meen affect the egg I meen like would it or could it get stuck in the chicken if I just moved them around and picked them up. What do you think?

    I've read on a thread here that a hen can lay an abnormal egg if it's stressed, but I don't think an egg would get stuck because you moved the hen, nor would I think one would go egg-bound because of it. Still, I would monitor them just to be safe.
