We have 28 hens and 2 roosters that we rotate around the pastures in a mobile coop. They just started laying in July. We have black Australorp, speckled sussex, buff Orpington, silver laced wyandotte, whiting true blue, whiting true green, and white rock.
We have 11 chickens and a goose. They are all about 6 1/2 months old. The goose is a White Chinese, 3 chickens are Black Australorps; 4 are Rhode Island Reds, and 4 are Barred Rocks. We typically get 10 or 11 chicken eggs a day. The goose seems to lay a couple of days in a row, then takes a break for 3 or 4 days.
