Eggs?

I was looking at baby chicken pictures and thought, “Where have the months gone and where the hell are my eggs?”

Sunday was the official day I was expecting the chickens to lay. I did get one egg two weeks ago but so far that is it.

I have been told in the beginning to expect small eggs and many double yoked eggs. Then the hens will get in the groove of things and should produce 250 eggs each their first year. Gradually the production will decline (after my third bypass) and each chicken should produce 1,000 eggs in a lifetime.

Activity has picked up back at the chicken coop. Lots of eating and squawking so I feel certain we may have a Denny’s moment any morning.

Each hen will produce 250 eggs a year? You're gonna be making some damn big omelets!

...are you providing them adequate outdoor sleeping arrangements, such a sleeping bags on the lawn?...

Why yes Phfrankie...they have two lovely nesting boxes (off the ground) and a multi level roost (off the ground).

A grassy lawn is only a dream for them.

If they produce as they are supposed to, what are you going to do with all those eggs? If you're making omelets, I'll be right over!
