    Hello
    I was wondering how long from the time your hen goes in to lay an egg til she is done, I try watching mine on weekends, i watch them go in and I go back in like 10 mins and they are still there, even 15 minutes, or longer to lay the egg for the day?

    Mine all take different amounts of time....even each chicken differing every day. Most of the time it seems to take 20 minutes or so, but I've already seen them in there an hour, and as little as 10 minutes.
