I am considering purchasing a chicken coop for my sons. They like eggs and I heard that raising chickens for eggs is cost effective and easy to do. Nine eggs weekly would be fine because I do not want to have too many chickens. I am not sure how many chickens would produce this amount.

Thanks for that answer. So with your own experience 3 hens would be fine. That's great because I really would not want to have more than a few to care for.
We have 3. One for each child and get plenty. I have noticed though the kids who only liked eggs a little before have began eating them a lot more now that they are involved in gathering them. Fun! 3 is plenty!
Thanks DrMark. I think I'd store the extra!
