Hi, I got my first egg on Tuesday, Then one on Wednesday, but no egg today. Should I be worried.
also, I have 3 roosters and 3 hens, I am trying to get rid of two roosters any ideas?
A chicken usually lays an egg every day or every other day. So, if your bird laid an egg two days in a row and then skipped a day, that's usually normal. I suspect that you'll get an egg from her tommorow. It takes a chicken 24-26 hours to form an egg in her oviduct. This accounts for a slightly later laying time each day, until she finally skips a day.
I gave my roosters away for free... If you need them gone fast then that is the quickest way that or sell them cheap...
