My Hens lay in around 11:00AM all of them lay about the same time, What time do yours lay? Is it normal for them to lay at this time?

Will they come back into to lay once I start to let them free range?

I have 31 hens and they lay all day long.  Some times in the evening too.  They do come back to lay when they free range.

I have 5 and they just started laying ( I think 3 are currently laying)

 

One lays every morning around 7am, and in the same cozy spot in the nest box, the other one lays all afternoon and even after she's in for the night as I find a very cold egg the next morn on coop floor. My third started laying Tuesday afternoon, and then again today mid morning.

one of mine lays right around 11, the other one when she did lay would lay early in the morning..I'm hoping the others start laying soon.

Mine started laying about five weeks ago. At first they seemed to lay about anytime during the day. Now they seem to lay mainly in morning and are finished by 1:00 pm but in reality I think chickens lay anytime during the day. I had chicken several years ago and I don't remember them laying at any certain time.

I have 14 goofballs that either all try to squish in the same nest box at the same time or will lay all times of the day......go figure barnie.gif

I get some Big eggs and some little eggs, I am not sure who is laying what. How long does it take for them to lay an egg?

I am pretty sure that a chicken lays eggs about and hour earlier each day and then repeats the cycle if interrupted by the night.

 

Eggs for breakfast, fried chicken for lunch, I like it deep fried with a batter for crunch. A feather filled pillow, and

hackle for flys, my roos like their chicks and my girls like their guys. So many uses for my fine feathered birds,and with that my dear friends comes an end to my words.
