When do Hens lay there egg at night or during the day?
Occasionally a hen will drop an egg from the perch at night, but 99.9% of eggs are laid during the day.
A hen laying eggs at night for me indicative of serious health issue. Such hens prone to produce small eggs or eggs lacking a proper shell.
i cover the nest when its a bout to get dark then open the cover about 1hr before sunrise the reason why im covering the nest at night is because i got some hens that wanna sleep in it
