    My little golden comets finally did it. 11 eggs for 11 hens.
    I feel like dancing a jig and would if I was not too old for
    such things.

    Congratulations. May I ask how old are your chickens when they first layed
    and how long did it take for all of them to follow ?

    That is too cool! I too have 11 hens, and I too experienced my first 11 egg day a few days ago. Generally we are at 9-10 eggs per day, every once in a while as few as 7 or 8, but we've only had one 11 egg day over here. Mine are 8 months old and a mixed flock of RIRs, Dominiques, Black Australorps and Easter Eggers.

    Enjoy that 11 egg day!

    Quote:They started laying the first week of July at 15wks first just a couple but
    gradually toward the middle of the month Iwas getting 6-7 a day
    Then the last few days of July and the first few days of Aug. I got 9 or 10
    a day one day dropped back to 8 then up to 10 the rest of the week
    now the second week(today) they out did them selves.[​IMG]

    So happy for you, mine are now 18 or 19 weeks and I only get one a day. Small eggs but double yolks, Hope your production keeps up and would like to know if it does. [​IMG]
