    I've recently got 3 rangers, 1 light sussex and 1 speckly. They're all 20 weeks old and have been laying for about a week. But we only seem to be getting 1 egg a day from 5 chickens [​IMG]
    All I want to know is the time it normally takes between each egg laid for another to be ready.

    Mine started out laying irregularly, then after a few weeks I got an egg a day from each of them. I was still feeding them starter feed along with oats & whatever they got from the yard. I think it'll even out soon.

    Quote:None of these breeds are an egg a day breed. If you want an egg a day you need to get Rhode Island Reds, Sex links or Leghorns.

    I have barred rocks, light bramas, banty cochins, ameraucanas, RIR's, and one sex link. I get about an egg a day from all of them.
