We don't really know how many hens we have, but we started out finding 2 eggs a day. Now we're up to four or five.
In case you're curious, this is what they look like.

When it was time to enjoy them for breakfast, my husband found what we'd read on the internet to be quite true-- the shells are really tough! He had to whack the eggs several times with a force that would make a chicken egg into a puddle of shell and slime. The taste, however, wasn't so different from a farm-fresh chicken egg.
