Pop Quiz Answers

The post you’ve all been waiting for!

1) Rhode Island Red: the classic “little red hen” will lay about 250 eggs per year.

2) White Plymouth Rock: A cold hardy bird that will produce 200 eggs/year. We have four.

3) Buff Brahma: Primarily a meat bird, they lay about 150 eggs/year. We have three hens.

4) Blue Andalusian: The Medieval spanish chickens can lay 170 eggs/year. We have four.

Let’s see, that works out to be 2,150 eggs per year, or about half a dozen eggs a day. More in the summer, and fewer in the winter (we have an unlighted, unheated coop.) Hmm…looks like we’ll need to make more pound cake and egg nog!
