    It depends. There is no set number they will lay. If she is young she has the potential to lay an egg almost every day, they will eventually slow to an egg every other, or every three, days.

    When my cochin bantams were at their peak of laying, they gave about 4 eggs a week, maybe 5. But, then they go broody and you've got no eggs for months, so it's unpredictable.

    I remember my LF cochin going broody, she was next to impossible to break! However the one time I let her have chicks I wound up taking them away because she was neglecting them.
