A new flock of 550 hens are laying small pullet size eggs. Over the next few weeks the egg size will increase. They start laying at 4.5 months old.
We aim to have a new flock come into production every 6 months. At any one time there are four producing flocks and one brooding.
Below is a picture of the girls under the house during the mid afternoon heat. They have access to water via the nipple drinkers suspended on the chassis of the house.
