Which breed is the best for eggs? White or brown makes no differance.
I think most people here will say EE's... let's find out...
Our RIRs have been laying 4 and 5 eggs from 5 hens, daily. Even during the winter. (With no added light)
White Leghorns are more than likely going to be your best bet for white egg layers (which is why they dominate the commercial egg industry). Sex links of any variety will be your best bet for brown eggs. In either case you should get well over 300 eggs in their first year. My RSLs were laying at a rate of 355 eggs per year per pullet their first year.
My red and black sex links were the first in my flock to lay and have layed consistently ever since!!
My silver laced wyandottes have been laying almost daily without any extra light. I also have a standard cochin that hasn't missed a day since winter started.
I get 5 to 6 eggs a day from 4 game hens.The young ones started laying jan. 30 and they haven't let up on the production.I have two soon-to-be 5 year hens who still lay as long as the young ones do.
number eggs ONLY thing that matters????
Well I have 2 EEs and they are the only ones laying and I still get an egg a day they're my egg machines lol!!!
I like the red star (sex-link) very good egg layers and good nature as well i do have 2 ee that i hatched last year and have 2 green eggs everyday
