Recently we were given a flock of bantams by a friend. They are so cute!
We got a miniature version of my full size Partridge Cochin rooster. His name is Edward, and he's so sweet! With him came all his hens of various breeds.
This past week in one day we got 24 eggs! Two dozen eggs in one day! I couldn't believe it! There is a mixture of full-size eggs and banty eggs. A couple of the banties are Easter Eggers and lay blue and green eggs.
We went outside and counted to see how many hens we had and we have 34 hens. I was shocked we have so many! Some of them are over 2 years old, so I'm not sure if they are laying and one of them is with her chick and not laying. So, I'm wondering how many we have that are actually laying? Anyone want some eggs?
