Wanted - Laying test volunteer

I want to see how many eggs my Production Reds lay, and it's hard to calculate from my breeder flock.  So I need a volunteer who has a small chicken coop suitable for 10 to 12 hens, and would be willing to rear the chicks from day old, and keep records on their egg production (daily number and weight) for one year of lay.  The flock can't be mixed with any other birds, and there will be no rooster.  The volunteer gets the chicks (all female) for free, has to cover all costs of rearing and feeding just as they normally would for their own layers, can do whatever they wish with the eggs, and can keep the hens at the end of the test.  Anyone interested?

Hmmmm, this is tempting. When do you want the experiment to start?
