    I have 12 hens and 1 rooster. Hatched April12 2014. They started laying in September and I have gotten 4 to five eggs a day. EVERYDAY. My friend has 2 hens and gets 2 to 3 eggs everyday. WHY DO I GET SO FEW eggs? They free range, get crumbles, pellets and our dinner left overs, and fresh water daily. WHATS UP?

    Some breeds are better layers than others. It may be that your friend has a breed that just lays really well. Although, no breed will lay 2 eggs a day, so it's doubtful that her two hens are laying 2-3 eggs a day.
