Hi!! My name is Brenda and I'm a new crazy Chicken Lady. I got a flock of 6 hens on Mother's Day and recently got my first egg. I'm excited to join the group because I have some questions/concerns that I'm hoping some of you veterans can address for me.

First off welcome to BYC! Congratulations on officially joining the world of chicken farming! BYC is a wonderful site full of people who are woefully experienced in the world of raising all kinds of poultry. Everyone is very helpful I don't want to know how my birds would be living without them. I'd love to help you in any way I can. What kind of chickens do you have?

So do chickens lay sporadically in the heat of summer or should it be on a fairly regular basis (i.e. an egg per hen per day)?

Yes it should be a consist laying pattern. It differs in the colder and darker months. Most chickens lay everyday but it may be different for every chicken. Though the laying should always remain in a pattern for example, one every other day or one every evening.

Okay..thanks for the info. I think I've got 2 who are laying now, but am only getting an egg a day now...thought maybe it was the heat. We live in Kansas and it's been near 100 degrees for the past 2 weeks.
