Throughout the winter, I’ve gotten two or three eggs a day from my nine pullets. Two had never even laid. This week, with day length now exceeding 10 hours and 10 minutes per day, egg production doubled! On Tuesday, I received my regular three eggs. The very next day, I collected a record-breaking (well, um, local record) 6 eggs in one day, which included one egg each from my here-to nonlayers!
Here is Wednesday’s haul:
I’m smitten – smitten, and swimming in eggs. I’ve gotten 18 eggs in the last 4 days which is just over what I have been averaging per week. I just sent off a lovely 6-pack of colorful eggs to my mother in law, and I have even more to spare.
Greenfire Farms in Florida sent out a newsletter on January 31st reporting doubled egg production on their farm. My production doubled on February 1st. Has anyone else seen such an occurrence? When, and how long was your day?
