Hi guys - me again. Well we are still only getting one egg a day between my 2 hens, and even then not every day, we can go 2 or 3 days without one. I know which one is laying and the other one appears healthy in every way excpet maybe her comb isnt as big or as red as the other one, and they seems to drink a lot. They are about a year old. Ive waited a year for these eggs i thought we would be getting 2 a day every day!! At the moment its a fight between my kids who gets egg for brekkie! We have to wait a week to build up enough to have one each!
we have quail instead of chickens but ours are laying erratically at the moment. We have a dozen hens and some days we only get a couple of eggs, other days we get around 10 or so. Our birds are a couple of years old now - last year they were highly prolific layers. They started relaying a couple of weeks ago, 1-2 eggs per day and slowly got up to speed. One of our birds only laid her first egg of the year at the weekend.
Since quail eggs are tiny (5-6 eggs make 1 hens egg) we can sometimes be waiting a few days to get enough eggs to make 1 'real' egg.
