    This is a bit of an odd one. For me.

    I have one of my chickens (RIR) laying an egg every day. Since she started laying, she hasn't missed a day. She hops in her box at 8:40 to 8:50am and is done by 9:30 or so, rain or shine, without fail. She hasn't taken a day off yet.

    The conventional wisdom on the forums is "every 25 hours" and I'm sat here with my comedic brain working overtime. Am I working her too hard? Do I have an OCD chicken? Do the other chickens thing she's just a bit strange?

    Is 25 hours just an average? What's the range? Anyone got a cute graph?

    I have 2 RIR's who started in August to lay. They lay 6 out of 7 days! And always at the same time of day......

    That's more like what I expected. This RIR has laid an egg daily for three weeks without a break.

    City Girl thinks maybe she's just really happy and content... [​IMG]

    We;re due for a cold snap in the high 80s next week, to break this string of 100+ days, so let's see if a temperature drop makes a difference.
