Some also occasionally short cycle that is lay an egg in under 24 hours.

While chickens can be unpredictable, most lay at a steady rate that is chicken specific.

They will skip a day when they lay an egg in the very late afternoon/early evening time period.

Hey thanks for that info! That explains why my girls only laid three today after weeks of laying 6-7 a day. Three of the hens did not lay until late yesterday and today they didn't lay at all!

My 19 week old Rhode Island Red hen just laid 2 eggs today 30 minutes apart ( her first egg) I have 2 more but their comb is still light red so I think they have another week or 2 before they start laying.
