After several weeks of protest, the chickens are beginning to lay more eggs. For awhile during the summer we were only getting 2-4 eggs per day. That's a very disappointing result when there are 20 laying hens out there. The decline in eggs was most likely caused by the summer heat and the upset to the flock when the younger ones were added. Adding new roosters probably contributed as well. I think they are settled down now because they are producing 10-12 eggs a day. That's still not as many as we should be getting.
There is a wide range of sizes from the different birds. I'm never sure which bird lays which egg except that the two different breeds lay different colors. A few weeks ago we got a tiny little green egg.
