    About what hour of the day will a chicken lay an egg?

    Every hen is different. I have late morning layers, early afternoon layers and one hen I actually have to wait on before I close the coop door at night! She doesn't go in to lay before 7 PM.

    Chicken lay when they want to.... or when the egg is ready to come out. And since its not a perfect circle they will lay at all different times.
