    I'm not an expert, sorry... but I think it depends on how old your chickens are, their diet, how much daylight they're getting, their general health, and how heavily they're already laying. Also, their breed makes a difference; production hens like my ISA Browns with the right conditions will lay an egg almost every day of the year. Other breeds may not lay so regularly.
