    Keeping hens and ducks chat!! Hens & ducks names & how many eggs do you get per day 7th Jul 15 at 5:07 PM
    As a hen and cockerel keeper myself I thought it would be interesting to ask what you name your hens and cockerels. And also ask how many eggs you are getting every day!! I know the egg laying changes when hens moult but just thought it would be interesting to see how many eggs you get. I have hens that are named Bluebell (typical name I think!!!), Muesli, cornflake and scarecrow plus some others. I am getting around 4 to 6 eggs a day at the moment!! Had a delicious egg salad for supper last night OMG it was lovely!!!

    Horrible weather here today for our girls and its due to get much colder within the next few days. Brrrr!!!

    Our little girl with the purple-ish comb is still ok thankfully but I bet she will really feel it when the temperature drops.

    Egg amounts are going up here so by the end of the week we should have enough for a huge omelette. How about everyone else with their eggs? Numbers creeping up I hope.

    No eggs from the ducks as yet this year. Ours normally start to lay again around mid January. But, they are getting on a bit now with 2 of them being 7 and the other 5 being 6 years old. We did notice a big drop in eggs last year from them.

    Hope everyone and their hens and ducks are all well.

    Take care
