    My hen layed her first egg today! (black star)

    When do they usually lay the next one?

    2 days or so. Even though your girls are sisters the others may take longer
    to begin laying. Their sisters in my flock aren't laying yet as far as I know but it's
    hard to tell with 18 various aged laying hens.

    The first egg always feels so good.
