Dr. J. Batty
Though most people start keeping poultry for the sake of having fresh eggs, a great many find that their stock provides much interest that their garden would seem incomplete without them. There is something to be proud of in a pen of vigorous pullets which, thanks to your good feeding and management are laying that little bit better than your next door neighbor's. And then there's the excitement of finding the first egg of the season and watching the daily score rise, till peak production is reached. Well-managed birds will give up to 200 eggs or more each year.
