4 Hens, 5 Months, 500 Eggs
It was a few weeks before they settled into a regular laying pattern but just the other day we chalked up 500 eggs in less than 5 months.
Certainly makes us feel they are worth having around.
Maintenance is minimal for our rewards.
We let the hens out for a while each afternoon and they love to explore and excavate the land in their own way.
When the sun begins to set we call for them with wheat grains for a treat. They happily (and innocently) answer the call and go home to their little house and wait another 24 hours to do the same thing all over again.
