    Mine just started laying going on and off. I wanted to know When they starting laying and start getting the hang of it should I expect 1 day a day?

    Just about I'd think. I would expect once they start laying and get the hang of things you can expect 5-7 eggs a week.

    On average 5/6 week is good at least during the first year. Once they go through their first moult, they'll slack off but the eggs will be bigger.
