culling non layers
by Jack Fulton
Is there a way to determine which hens are laying & which one are not?
I have 46 hens 22 first year layers (april 1,2010), 42 second year layers (may 6,2009) & 4 over 4 years of age.
I am getting between 24 & 30 eggs a day It doesn,t seem that that is enough eggs per day.
I was wondering if there was a way of culling the ones that arn't laying? The breeds are "cinnamin queen" & "isa brown". There is feed & water & scratch in front of them at all times.
