I have 11 hens and 1 rooster. Only two are laying yet, so we get one or two eggs per day. The others are not too close, combs are still very small and pink, so it will be at least a month and probably more like 2 months before they start laying and then there are even younger girls...... I am still buying a dozen or two eggs per week because we eat a lot of eggs and I do a ton of baking. I hate to buy store bought eggs!!! Ugghhhh!!! I can't wait for the day when we have so many eggs that I can give a dozen to a neighbor, a dozen to my mom, etc. That will be SOOOOO COOOOLLLLL!!!!!
