Do all chickens lay an egg daily?

This may be a silly question. I have 4 golden comet hens. I average 3-4 eggs a day. It is consistently one day 3 eggs, the next 4, in this same order. They are 23 weeks old and have been laying for at least 5 weeks now. Should I be concerned, or is this normal? Thanks in advance.

Most chicken breeds do not lay an egg a day for a year.

The world record was set by a White Leghorn that laid 371 eggs in 364 days. However, the average is more like 150 to 200 eggs a year for domesticated chickens.

Your Golden Comets are a hybrid that have been bred to lay well, They will lay about 300 eggs in their first year. Production declines each year as a hen ages.

Thanks! I feel better. While "googling" the breed before we got them I had read about them getting egg bound or something, and wanted to make sure they were okay. :)
