Just curious about this as I am still new to chickens. I have 3 hens--one is 1yo and the other two are pushing 3. The 1yo lays about 5 or 6 days out of 7 (other two lay every other day or a bit more often). Is that pretty much peak production, or do some hens literally lay every day? ETA: the 1yo is a RIR and the other 2 are Barred Rocks. I am perfectly happy with their egg production (especially the 3yos--I think they're doing pretty well!)...just was curious. I LOVE having chickens.
