    We are new to the backyard chicken experience. Four of our chickens are 19 weeks old and one of them layed their first egg four days ago. We have checked a few times a day since and nothing. When they first start laying, does it take a while for them to get regular?

    I'm no expert but I feel like it does take a couple weeks to get "regular." After the first egg it was a couple days for another egg. Then one more egg on the fifth. A couple days after that we got another. In an egg shell (haha) we're still waiting for a regular daily egg.
