I got 9 Buff Orpingtons. 8 hens,1 rooster. They will be 6 months old at the end of this month (November) From what I've read they will average laying an egg every other day. The last 10 days I've been getting 4 eggs a day so I figure all 8 hens matured and are laying. Last Thursday 5 eggs so I figured Friday I'd get 3. Nope got 5 and a 1/3 (real small egg). 10 and 1/3 eggs from 8 hens in 2 days ?! Do BOs lay more then what I thought?
