    My 5 month old buff orpington pullet layed her first egg yesterday (July 21, 2010), at about 3:30pm. I know that hens lay eggs every 26 hourrs, but when they first lay how often do they lay?? thanks!! I wish I could post some pictures but cant figure out how:( sorry

    Congrats. Two of mine just started laying last week. One just about every other day and the other today was her second egg. I have 12 hens, and they are 16 weeks old. These chickens actually seem not as smart as the ones I had in the past. One instist on laying outside, now I got the other one to lay in the nest. I put plastic eggs in all the nest. Some of the others should start laying soon. Can't wait. I made my husband eggs the other day, and three eggs he only needed 1/2 of piece of toast. Can't wait until they get bigger yolks.

    ok- am starting to get worried. I have six 6 month old chickens. We got one egg last Friday (6 days ago) and NONE since! That egg was in the box in the coop- I suppose I could search around the yard some.

    Where are my eggs????!!!! [​IMG]:weee
