    Mine are seasonal, they start around febuary March. Mine lay one every other day until they decide how many eggs they think is enouph to sit on. Sometimes 9.. sometimes 16-17

    Mine start laying in march and finish up in mid september. Probably depends on where you are,but ususally length of day and daylight sets their timer.

    Mine lay longer than most being fro Louisiana but for sure they will lay until they stop [​IMG]

    Usually they will lay 2-3 clutches and be done [​IMG]
