Title:
Egg Production

Image ID:
R043

Description:
Chickens lay one egg every 26 hours, for a total of 312 eggs in a one year period. Egg sizes change based on many factors, including how long a chicken has been laying for. Shell colour does not determine the nutrition of the eggs. Instead, it only provides an indication of which breed of hen laid the egg.
