Egg Laying Chart

I start the New Years by printing out a copy of my vintage egg laying chart. Click on the image for a PDF that you can use to keep track of your own flock’s productivity.

Taylor Egg Record

I’ll be tallying up the 2014 egg record today. More on that later in the week.

Happy New Year!

  1. I have been using this from you, since I started chicken keeping three years ago. I copied a spare and each year make a new copy, keeping a spare to copy from the following year.

    I will make a new one from here as my next year’s copy is a bit faded and the lines a bit wobbly. I always fill it in and tally the eggs each month and at the end of each year. I mark my girls by the first letter of their names so that I can also tally each individual girl’s eggs.

    I have just posted the results on my blog.

    I am a recorder and I love my egg record sheet so thank you so much for this.

    Happy New Year to you too and to all your family (human and animal).

    • Glad you’re using the chart. I love charts, too, and when useful is combined with charming, it’s even better. Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year to all the residents of little Pond Farm!! Looks like everyone is out enjoying a bit of free-ranging this morning, except, of course, for Phoebe and the Fishies. Pip and Caper are sure having a lot of fun exploring and “helping” the Goat Maid. What a great way for your blogger fans to start off 2015. Many thanks!

    • Did you see the goaties sneak into the barn to snatch hay? Despite having an acre of good things to eat outside? Such lazy boys!

  3. LOL! I thought your camera was fritzed! The picture was allllll white. And then it shifted somewhat and I realized that a certain lady was blocking my view! :D She eventually moved so I could see. And you have sun today too! Isn’t it a wonderful way to start the New Year!

    Happy New Year’s to one and all!

    • Yes, it’s a gorgeous day. Below freezing, but so sunny that it feels mild. I cleaned the coops and goat area this morning, and now am off to see my horse. Last night I had two 7-letter words in a game of Scrabble. A very good start to the New Year.

      • I envy you having someone to play Scrabble with! :) what a great way to start the New Year and you must have won with a hand like that! It is SO cold here and I am recovering from shoulder surgery so have not been able to spend much time with the girlz! I am antsy to get back outside. But for now I am loving watching the Hencam to get my fix!

  4. Happy New Year! I love the Egg Chart! I will have to download a copy and start using it! So far today, 4 out of 5 girls have laid. Good start to this year! :)

  5. Started using egg chart last year. So I can see that the girls are laying a week earlier than last year. Happy New Year to all at Little Pond Farm.

  6. Happy New year to my fav chicken lady, Terry G….I used your chart for the first time this past year and loved to tally the totals…I am going to tally all the months this week to see what we produced….or I should say the hens….thank you for the chart….

  7. Terri I just finished recording 2014 stats with 1189 eggs for the year, with August being the highest month with 163. I have 10 hens and a rooster now. April 25, I found 22 eggs in the basement window well. . . and I’m trying to retrain Sweetie Jane to lay in the nesting box and not the other side of the barn. I really enjoy your site. Filling out 2015 spreadsheet with 2 eggs today. Thanks!

  8. Thanks! I was just about to start searching for this to start the new year! Happy New Year!

  9. Just did mine yesterday. Last year we were down to 15 hens. We got 3661 eggs of which 3383 (92%) were salable. Total expenses for the flock were $914.49. Cost per dozen was $3.24, the lowest yet. We sell our organic eggs for $5.00/dozen, and they fly off the shelves. And yearly average ROL of lay was highest: 69.75%. It was a good year!

    Our worst year (2012) was when a dozen cost us $10.17. I didn’t start keeping egg records until our 3rd year. 2015 will be our 8th year.

    • Because I’ve had so many retired hens, I haven’t recently figured out my cost of eggs produced, as when I did do the accounting, the number has been like your 2012. Perhaps this year I’ll face reality and do it again. I do, however, keep tabs on all of my animal expenditures.

  10. I loved your egg chart, but why don´t you identify the hen that laid the eggs? I always do that. It´s awesome because I can give prizes for the Hen of the Month and also make graphics of the productivity of each girl throughout the year.
    Happy New Year!

    • You do egg-cellent record keeping! With 16+ hens to keep track of, and eggs that look similar, that just isn’t feasible here. What prizes do your top hens get?

      • It is complicated sometimes, but I always keep an eye on them and they usually lay in different places.
        I give treats to the top hens and hang a picture of them on the coop. It´s silly, but I like to do that. Of course, the hens must keep thinking what that crazy girl hangs on their wall every month.
