    We have five hens or pullets 5 1/2 months old. We got out first egg on Sunday morning found it at about 8:30 AM not sure when it was laid. Monday morning no egg, Monday afternoon found another egg, it came between 2:30 and 3:30 in the afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday no eggs. Both the eggs looked the same small and green must have been an Easter egged. Also both eggs had what looked like a small blood stain, the first stain was worse than the second.

    Is this a normal way to start?
    Is getting eggs in the afternoon normal?

    Sounds normal enough to me. Yes, they can lay eggs throughout the day. I even get them into early evening.
