    They will lay one, wait a while...lay another... and about a month or so into laying, they will start laying one every 24-36 hours.

    Once your pullets get into the egg laying full cycle, they will lay one egg every 25 hours. This will continue for the first year and then slow down to one egg every other day, however they will be larger. You will notice that everyone lays in the morning and then little by little you will see them laying in the afternoon til the clutch is layed, then soon after everyone will be laying in the morning again. This is my experience anyway...?

    Bigzio...when did your Light Brahmas begin laying? I am expecting them to be the slowest maturing of my four breeds...

    Each of my hens layed about 7-10 eggs,before they started getting into laying consistant.
    First day egg,2nd no egg,3rd no egg,4th no eggg,5-egg,then it seeemed like there was a week and a half waiting period....[​IMG] Then all the sudden the eggs were alot bigger almost full size.Now i get at least an egg every day out of my 2 hens that are laying consistantly now.
    It took mine around 2 or so weeks from first egg to start laying consistant.
