    Finally got our first two eggs, think it was one of our Amercaunas!! They were both light blue. Does anyone know how often they lay? Every day or every other day? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Depends on the bird, I have one hen that is almost daily and another hen that lays a couple times a week and the rest are somewhere in between.

    Quote:When they start to lay they may not lay regularly, i.e., every day. You may have one that lays every other day, another that lays two days in a row and then skips a day. It's very random for awhile before they start laying regularly.

    According to what I've read on them they should lay around 5 out of 7 days.
