    Once started, how long will the average brown egg chicken lay eggs before she has to rest? How long will the rest be before she starts up again? All of this given good conditioins and the bird being an egg production variety.

    This really depends on when she started laying... If its during the winter she will stop laying but in the spring and summer she will lay right up to the fall.... also if you use artificial light you can get them to lay longer.
