    One of my black sex links laid an egg about 9 am Saturday morning, Sunday morning she laid about 10 am and Today she laid about 11 am. Will she always lay like this or will it eventually be the same time every day???

    Bases on my experience, she'll probably lay like that for a few more days, getting later every day. Then she'll take a day off and start again earlier in the morning. This cycle could repeat over and over.

    Thank You!!! I could swear when I was a kid and we had chickens we would go out every morning and collect eggs and then no more throughout the day. I always thought chickens laid their eggs early in the morning every day.

    Mine don't, seems like there on a 25-26 hour cycle. Thus a little later each day, then they start over. It's not easy in the winter, if you don't get them soon enough they will freeze. Usually they're done for the day by early afternoon.
