    I finally bought 3 more hens and they are about 1 year old and are laying . my origional hen I got from school last may is nearly 5 months old we don't know if she is laying yet. I'm getting 3 eggs a day from my 3 new hens [2redstars, one plymouth rock] . about how many eggs a day should I be getting from these 4 hens . thanks so much for your help.

    Hen's will lay one egg a day.So If you have 4 hen's you should get 4 per day.Birds do break the laying cycle often and sometimes go a couple days during a good season without any egg's.5 month old will only start to lay.I have 15 layer hen's about 5 months old and only 3 so far are laying an egg daily now.The rest wont be far behind.
