    About how many eggs a week could I expect from:

    5 Black Austalorps

    5 Buff Orpingtons

    5 Rhode Island Reds


    Thanks

    That is a pretty tough question to answer. It will depend on the time of year, the feed you are feeding them, their environment, the health in their bloodlines, you get the idea.

    I would guess anywhere from 10-12 in the warmer seasons. Figure each hen should have at least 1 day a week that they will not lay. In the cooler months, I would say 10 or less. Again, this is my best guess. Hope you get many more! [​IMG]
