My buff Orp, Daisy, has laid an average of 5 days/week since August when we got her. I am not sure how old she is. She has only ever taken a day off in between her days of laying. Now, she hasn't laid for 5 days (counting today), and she laid a shelless egg yesterday. My adult Bantam-Cochin is laying like crazy, and my Serama lays regularly (then hides her nest and goes broody, but that is in another thread), but Daisy has been the most consistent layer over time. I am new to chickens this year, so their habits are a mystery to me. I live in central FL, so while the days are shorter, it is still quite warm.
