Table Eggs Production
After the "can we breed questions", another frequently asked question is do you need males in a flock of females kept for table egg production.
No, you don't need roosters in your free ranging layers :) They eat a lot and are noisy!
Healthy pullets start laying at 5-6 months. That is standard. Enjoy the hide and seek game when you pick up their eggs on the range.
They have dark orange colored yolks, no fishy taste nor smell. I am able to take them raw :) You get great tasting eggs from grass fed hens. Perfect for my leche flan.
At 60days, dress your male Sunshines for meat and keep the females for your grass fed layers.
