Now that's what I call a good breakfast.

But unless you're expecting company you might want to cut back to a pail of biscuits so as not to appear excessive.

And correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the amount of a settin of eggs dependent on how many chickens you have settin on said eggs?

No. A settin of eggs is dependent on how many eggs a hen, or any other hen has laid over a period of time so they will hatch. If there is a rooster in the hen house of course. The amount differs from hen to hen. I've seen as many as 15. As few as 5. 10 to 12 is about all a hen can cover. Any fertile egg placed under a "broody" hen will work.

Chickens don't lay during cold winter weather. And the long dark night also has an effect on how often they lay.

Light is the key. They require about 14 hours of light to lay. This is why commercial egg producers burn lights for the extra required amount of time when the days are short. Also here they have 'curtains' that lower to protect from cold. Many have heaters....much like green houses.
