We got our hens as chicks in late July and they finally stated laying over the weekend! We had 6 the first day (presumably 1 from each hen) and then between 3 and 4 each day after. It is cold and has been super snowy so I am surprised I'm even getting those to be honest. The only problem is they are not morning birds and usually don't lay until sometime between 9 and noon which means that the eggs have to sit there for a while before collected and opens up the risk of egg eating, etc. Is there any way to "train" them to lay earlier in the morning, or am I just stuck with late layers?
