They’re Round and They’re Bigger at the Bottom

You guessed it. Eggs!

We’ve had chicken for over 3 years now. We own 3 fully grown hens and 3 pullets. Pullets are teenage hens.

On average we get 2 eggs per day. The reason we don’t get 6 a day is that our pullets are only just getting to the stage where they are capable of laying, and our older hens are senile and have troubles keeping up to the quota.

But all in all keeping chickens is fun and economical.

Mainly we have Barnavelder crosses. They lay chubbily, small, dark brown eggs.

The world Jey’s way
