    I got 7 eggs today from 4 hens. I know chickens are only supposed to lay one a day, but I got 6 yesterday, 4 the day before, 3 before that, and 10 the day before that (which is when I started paying more attention to how often I collected them, 10 had to have been 2 days of eggs) I'm telling the truth [​IMG] I swear [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Wow. My flock has all but given up laying for the year. And I have (pause to do math; sure sign of crazy chicken person) fourteen who should be laying, 9 pullets who should be starting to lay any day now, and 10 freeloaders- I mean roosters- right now. And 3 teens who have yet to announce their gender.

    I didn't know either way, but most of the info I have found on the web is saying only 1 a day. I promise I know how to count!! [​IMG]

    My neighbor does have chickens. She keeps them enclosed almost all the time except for every once in awhile when she is out in the yard with them. I have never seen them anywhere close to my boxes, not even in my yard. These are my chickens' eggs. I have 2 colors, white and a medium brown. I was talking to the lady at tractor supply about it yesterday. This is where I bought my chicks in the spring. She said she has heard of them laying 2 eggs in a day. I don't know! [​IMG] I'll just enjoy the eggs! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sure sign my girls have stopped molting is that I got 10 eggs today out of 11 layers. I have one freeloading Amercauna who is our prima donna that looks good but is good for nuthing (laying I mean) and the rooster who has a good excuse for not laying!!!! [​IMG]
