2016 Chicken Egg Production

This is an up-to-date account of our egg production from our small homesteading chicken coop. We had 7 hens at the beginning of the year and gained one more chick from the spring. Because of our three chick losses from a possum, we decided to not butcher anymore hens this year. Our goal is to get a few more chicks next spring, possibly up to 15 hens total.
