How Many Eggs Can You Expect From Your Hens?
According to the International Egg Commission, the UK average
egg consumption per person is approximately 180 eggs a year,
or just under 3.5 eggs a week. So, on paper a family of
four would eat about 12 to 14 eggs a week, which is exactly
what you would expect from three happy and well-fed hens.
We get this from just two!
You should also know that egg production does vary depending
on what breed of chicken you keep. For example, a Light
Sussex may lay up to 220 eggs a year, while a showier breed
such as the Orpington may only produce 80 eggs a year....
