The above is a picture of our first chicken egg, laid on June 10, 2010. Last Friday marked one year of laying.
As I mentioned in the post on one year of owning chickens, now that the chickens are adults, they are laying 2-3 eggs a day. It took them a while to get up to that rate. The other two chickens, who are younger, didn’t start laying until October.
So, given that, the first year tally is a lower overall than it should be in the future. Still, I am happy to report that my three chickens yielded 477 eggs in the first year of laying.
And we ate (or gave away) every one of them. The eggs, not the chickens.
