You don’t need a large flock or an expensive setup to get eggs for your table as there are many breeds lay 5 or 6 eggs a week.  It is however best to have a minimum of three hens, as they are sociable creatures who like the companionship of others of their kind.

In the winter they roost up next to their friends, and in the summer they’ll dust bathe in groups and flop around in the sun.
