How many chickens do I need to get at least 9 eggs weekly?


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.
