    [​IMG] Hi,
    My daughter and I have started our little chicken experience with 6 chickens. She is 9 and is loving taking care of her pet chickens. She would like to know how long it takes for a chicken to make an egg in its body. We just found our first two eggs yesterday:) Thanks for any help...

    I have read several places chickens can produce an egg every 23-25 hours.

    [​IMG] You've already received your answer. Compliment your daughter on a question more sensible than many adults ask. [​IMG]
