My mom got 18 chickens as a gift. One disappeared shortly after she got them but still has 17. She gets slightly more than a dozen eggs a day and people are always hounding her for fresh eggs. Well today she found a hen hiding behind something in their coop and she was sitting on somewhere between 17-20 eggs she figured. She thinks she could sell 15 dozen eggs a day pretty regularly. I think it sounds like a lot of work. So anyone keep any chickens?
