    One of my pullets started laying at the weekend, the first egg was sat and she layed it in the garden, the 2nd was sunday and was done in her coop the 3rd was yesterday and was done in the run, why as she seemed to have missed a day, nothings changed to her daily routine.

    When mine started laying, they were very irregular. My newest layer is going every other day. Most of mine have gotten better, I have 4 that lay six out of seven days.
