    I have 2, ONLY 2 silver spangled hamburg hens in a 8x4x4 pin, nothing can get in and nothing can get out. My Hens Rutabaga and Rhubarb started laying March 15-17? thats when I got my first 2 eggs! Since then from March 18th-April 4th (I didnt look today) I have got 32eggs!!!!!!!!!!

    Thats 32 eggs in 19 days from 2 hens!!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Is that insane or what? I didn't know Hamburgs layed that much! Anybody have hens that lay that much? Or is this normal and my BRs and RIR hen are slakers?

    I think it's the season and the fact that they are young? My barred rock laid her first egg 21 days ago and has laid one egg per day since then, without missing a day. My other barred rock & 2 leghorns started a little later, but are each laying one egg per day. I thought they would lay 5-6 eggs per week, not 7 per week.
