    Mine have been laying between 8:00 a.m. to 11 a.m.

    I thought I read somewhere that they lay every 25 hours, so I assumed that it would get later and later in the day...but for 2 months now it has been the same time of day...*shrug*

    Thank you for the information !! My girls are approximately 17 weeks, & I'm waiting for my first egg. For the past week I've made 5 to 6 trips a day to the coop checking for that elusive first one !!!!!
