    Unless stressed by disease, predation, flock changes, changes in environment, poor nutrition or lack of water, they can't help but lay eventually whether they're in or out. Depending on the breed they will lay around every 26 hours. For that reason they'll lay about 2 hours later every day until they skip a day. Then for the next week (keeping with that 26 hour cycle) all the eggs that would have been laid at night will come in the morning till the clock catches up and they start coming 2 hours later each day again.
