    My chicken is laying eggs in the middle of the day. Is that a good thing or a bad thing.


    Thanks Brian

    Hi, one of my 8 girls just started laying. She's 5 months old. I thought hens lay in the morning too until she gave me an egg at 1:30pm today and then one at 8pm the other day! She is definitely not a morning hen...LOL! I use to have a hen that laid before the sun came up every day. I guess it just depends on there internal clocks. Good Luck!
