Besides the broody hen, I have 2 hens that are in their prime, 1 really old hen, and 1 very young hen. I'm getting on average 2.5 eggs/day. Not bad for the stock I have. And really that's the perfect number of eggs for me. As much as I like to share my extras and all the funny entertainment I get from the chickens, I don't really need 20 fluffy butts to feed. Will I increase the number when spring gets here? You betcha. They're an addictive habit! And who can resist the little peeping balls of feathers?
But for now, I'm happy with my egg supply. Off to breakfast, have a great week!
