15 dozen?! That's a lot of eggs! How many laying hens do you have?
LOL, that's a cute way to describe it. My hens usually lay light brown eggs, but every now and then one will look white, exactly as if they are out of color "ink".
I have 13 red crosses and 2 leghorns,,, I leiterally get 15 eggs a day 5 out of 7 days a week, and no less than 13 the other 2 days.....I feed them blue seal layers mash and oyster shell (which they oddly like) and I planted a 25x15 ft clover field for them and they freee range out there 3 hours a day out of their run, My uncle also owns a bakery (so i get all the stale bread) and they get moist bread every day... Ive never had a problem in 15 years lol
Lol thanks ...yeah thats what I can compare it too lol... i even had one that started off dark brown and got noticably lighter towards the tip lol
I think ours are laying invisible eggs.......I can't find them anywhere!
Amy laid this a couple of days ago...
Aww look at that little egg!
I think when they get older they lay less often and the quality diminishes. I read that hens really only have about two good productive years.
Triple-Yolker from yesterday. Laid by a 15 week old Red Star.
