    I am wondering the same thing, though my husband came up with an idea, that sounds like too much work for me right now. I had to put a hen in chicken jail and after 2 days she finally laid an egg. I think I could do that with all the hens, 1 at a time, until I knew how frequently they lay. Maybe someone has an easier idea considering I have 20 chickens.
