    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know how much the 'point of lay' can vary? I have three chooks at the mo, starting small! Two have been laying for over two weeks, one is a Light Sussex and the other is a hybrid - Copper Black. My other girl is also a hybrid - bluebell. She has laid a couple of times but hasn't laid in about four days. Is this normal for some birds? She seems OK. I was worried about her a couple of weeks ago as she seemed a little under the weather, but she is fine and is eating a pecking around with the other two.

    Thanks for your time.

    A LOT. I've had one start at 17 weeks, and know of hens who didn't start til after a year.
