laying eggs questions (General Discussion)
How many eggs does one hen usually lay each day?
What time of day does she typically lay?
I have 3 or 4 hens and 3 or 4 roos (I have never heard one of the guineas make a noise!)
I had 1 broken egg on Friday, in the coop
2 eggs, in 2 different nests, on Monday
1 egg on Tuesday in one of the same nests.
They free range during the day (6am - 5pm) and sleep in the coop at night.
Usually, after they are let out of the cage, they fly the fence and graze on the 40 acres. I call them in (or try too!) everytime they fly out.
The eggs that I found were in my yard.
I am on 'egg patrol' 2x a day now, as I want to pick up the eggs. I look under every tree, and bush, in my 1 acre yard.
No eggs today, Wednesday.
Also, one of the eggs that I had picked up, and marked with an X, and put back in the nest, was pecked by a guinea until the yolk flowed.
I always am grateful for all of your help and support!
