Laying summary – March to May
September 4, 2010 § Leave a comment
First item of business in updating ChookeNZ is to get the laying summaries up to date. So, we’ll take the shortcut of bunging three months together!
The three charts below actually illustrate rather well the way egg production dwindles as autumn moves into winter. Poppy laid her last eggs before moulting in March, then in April, Lily and Frida slowed down. By May only Bessie and Neroli were still laying, and if you check the y-axis scale you’ll see that they were slowing down too.
Eggless days illustrate this even better: March had only two days with no eggs laid, April had six and May had 19.
So how about Venus, Ella and Claire? Hardly a sausage (or egg) between them. All stopped laying in January, apart from one Ella egg in February. These days, those three are not exactly highly productive chooks.
