Free Resource – Egg Collection Log


Chickens were among the first of our animals on the farm, given as a gift from some dear friends. Over the past three years we very much enjoy keeping chickens and eating our  very own farm-fresh eggs. One thing is for sure though! Their laying cycles are both intriguing  and frustrating.
Due to predators and some unknown reasons, we have cycled through a number of chickens, but we still have one trusted layer left from our original batch. It is very fun to watch our chickens from day-to-day as well as finding their eggs. What gets frustrating is that for what seems like to explainable reason, all egg production stops – from all of them. After a considerably long break from finding eggs, we began wondering if there was something wrong.
We do realize that their egg laying is cyclical, but were surprised when all of them seem to stop at the same time. We haven’t really kept any records on these cycles, but decided it is a good idea to start doing that. The ability to look backwards and see the cycles and also perhaps identify reasons for their breaks would be very helpful.
We searched online to see if there were any ready-made egg-laying charts, but weren’t really satisfied with what we found. So, we did the next best thing…we created our own. That is, after all, the homesteader’s way. With this experience in mind, it may just be possible that others of you out there may have been looking for the very same thing. We’ll save you the effort and share ours with you, right now…for  FREE!
