The egg count for this week is -
Chickens - 36
Ducks - 16
Geese - 8
The geese lay every other day and there is only two of them, so they are doing OK. The ducks are having a bit of a break, although all five girls laid today. The chickens are coming along nicely, seven eggs today, only the three grey are not laying. Dotty is only a pullet so she has an excuse, the Marans laid one egg each when they arrived and that was it. Naughty chickens!
Since we bought all the new chickens on 23-24 February, we have had 148 chicken eggs and 142 duck eggs. That is over a period of eight weeks (or two months). We have not eaten all of those, some I have sold, after all, the birds do need to try and support themselves! Most of the eggs end up in cakes, omelets, scrambled, or sandwiches. I had such a lot at the beginning of the week, I cracked them into bags and froze them, I will see how they come out later. I had a health check last week and my cholesterol levels were brilliant so much for the 'don't eat eggs'.
