best layer of the month # December / best layer of 2020

First of all, happy new year to all my readers!  Bye bye to 2020 which we’ll all be glad to put behind us, with hopes of a brighter year in 2021.

I’ve been having fun totting up figures today of eggs laid by our very productive hens (left to right in photo) Florence, Mauricette and Ruby.  But also not forgetting old Miss Moneypenny, who died this summer and contributed to egg laying in the first half of the year.

For December our best layer is Ruby, our red hen.  She laid 27 eggs while Florence laid 22 and Mauricette laid 15.

And when I tot up total egg count for the entire year . . . I collected a grand total of 956 eggs in 366 days!  Incredible,!

Miss Moneypenny laid 136 of those . . . Mauricette was in third place with 180.  Florence was in second place with 311.  And Ruby our red hen takes gold, with 329.  Well done to all of them!  And here’s to another year full of lovely fresh eggs!

  1. Happy New Year and congratulations to Ruby!! Now I’m hungry for an omelette for breakfast. 🙂 Looking forward to another year of seeing all the creative projects you and other bloggers will be working on in 2021.

    • thanks Terri ^^
      Yes I do love an omelette or soft-boiled eggs, hard-boiled, scrambled, fried . . . and at the moment I’m having a spate of making different flavour “custard” desserts: fresh mint from the garden when we still had fresh mint, vanilla or coffee.

  2. Yes indeed! Our hens are out of molt, so I have to start working on using more eggs again! Pound cake and meringues yesterday, hard boiled eggs for lunch and one extra for salad, and lemon curd…there will be quiche for dinner one night this week, and eggs for breakfast tomorrow…😂
