Eggs Totals - To date - What have I done with them all?

I just realised that you haven't seen an egg total lately from my little flock have you - it is amazing how many eggs they have produced. I am glad that I keep a record. Here it is up to todays date.

Norfolk Lasses Eggs Total to Date: 415 Day:177

KoKKo 139 Personal best egg weight 86grms 29.11.2005
Adelaide 139 Personal best egg weight 80grms 26.02.2006
Ginger 137 Personal best egg weight 80grms 27.03.2006

London Ladies Bantam Eggs Total to date: 76 Day:44

Dilly Dilly 26 Personal best egg weight 36grm 27.03.2006
Freckles 25 Personal best egg weight 37grms 28.03.2006
Pumpkin 25 Personal best egg weight 35 grms 01.04.06

I have had to guess these pass few days who has been laying the solitary bantam egg, but as Pumpkin has been photographed snuggled up to Dilly Dilly, there is a good chance that is has been her - as Freckles is always out and about all day digging holes and shouting.

Getting on for 500 eggs - amazing isn't it? Makes me wonder what I have done with them all. I guess that more than half of them have been given away at least, some ahve been frozen, and others have been given away in presents of cakes, biscuits, lemon curd, and such like. We eat about six a week - mainly bantam eggs - more if we have visitors.

But even without eggs I would still have them.


  1. my chickens have slacked off this april. don't know why. maybe cange in the weather

  2. That might be why only one batam is laying for me - or mayeb because Dilly won't let anyone near the nest!
