End of January egg count

I decided to do an end of month egg count while I am still able to see which girls are laying which eggs.

Ebony laid 17 eggs in January.

Smoke laid 17 eggs in January.

Marmite laid 16 eggs in January.

Spangle laid 14 eggs in January.

Jasmine laid 2 eggs in January.

Salmon laid 1 egg in January.

This gives us a total of 67 eggs for January which is amazing.

Ebony has slowed down a bit in the winter months compared to the summer but is still laying well. Smoke is a really good layer because not only did she equal Ebony in January but she hasn’t laid during the last week since she went broody. This means her 17 eggs were in fact laid in three weeks. Her eggs are also the biggest serama eggs so far.

Jasmine and Salmon haven’t got properly started yet so they can’t really be counted at the moment.

Sienna and Vanilla are yet to start and haven’t yet shown any interest in the nest boxes.

I wonder how many eggs we will be getting in summer when all the girls are laying! As well as Sienna and Vanilla we will be able to add Flame, Dandelion and Cinnamon.

We will have loads of eggs!

    I am really loving having a constant supply of eggs. At the moment we are eating them all ourselves as we eat them two or three each at a time because of their small size. In the summer we will probably gift some to friends and neighbours. I just love having eggs in winter this year.

    I bet you’ll get loads of eggs – and loads of broodies!

    I have been thinking that there will be loads of eggs and then as you say you have to off set that with the broodies. I won’t be able to shut them out any more so some will be longer broody than others. I was surprised how quickly Smoke snapped out of it recently but then last summer Cinnamon surprised me. Cinnamon had always come out of it in a matter of days and then during the heat wave she stuck with it for three weeks even when the nest boxes were closed! It is going to be a quite different summer for me this year.
