    It just depends. Mine lay anywhere from 6 a.m. until dusk. Whether that's normal or not, I don't know. That's just what mine do. [​IMG]

    Our two 'big' girls typically lay before noon. Now that our little girls have begun to lay, we get eggs right up to bed time (theirs, not ours [​IMG]). I'm curious if the little girls will stop laying in the afternoon once they get older.
