    And I think she's primarily laying in the coop (which I still need to get pics of - should do it now while everybody is asleep). How often do they lay eggs?

    Also, do all hens lay eggs? I don't think my brahma hen is laying yet (she and the silkie who is laying are the same age)

    All chickens do lay eggs, unless there is a physiological problem, rare, I'd think. They lay sometimes every day, sometimes every couple of days, but almost all chickens lay a few eggs per week. Brahmas can be very late to mature. My Buff Brahma didn't lay her first till she was 30 weeks old, which I hear is not unusual.
