Oh, just wondered. I keep pretty good records on hatching, and always would have liked to track egg production, but its just too hard with the numbers of birds I have.

I've just updated my charts for production this year and it looks as if averages may be higher.

What has contributed to this is not letting any hen stay broody this year as I do not need to replace any hens. So, no chicks frown

November is shaping to be a top month. I've just tallied the eggs for the month up to 26th and there have been 188. Still four more days to go, so this will change. Mind you I have two more hens (pullets) than last year, and they are laying very well. Since commencing laying in June, Jade and Topaz have laid 149, & 123 respectively.

Will update all charts and add them, again in January to see how I finished the year.

Ok, so here's my new charts which show 2008. You will notice the useless Pickle has not improved. She has had two clucky spells this season and is now halfway through moult, so production is low for her yet again. She is beginning to look like a cull chook. She might still have some value for someone wanting to breed some show quality RIRs. laugh
