We now have:
- 3 four-month-old Black Jerseys from Craigslist
- 3 eight-month-old Red Stars, and 2 Australorps from our friends Gabe and Kate
- 10 (and then there were 11 when we got home) six-week-old Araucana hens (which will lay blue eggs!!!) from craigslist.
Only the 5 we got from our friends are laying. The others will start producing when they are about 6 months. On average one chicken will lay 2 eggs every 3 days. However, Araucanas lay a little less than other hens. So I figure in a few months each family (the Carmonas and us) should be getting about 3 dozen eggs per week.
