    I am wondering, yesterday my 3 rir 9 month olds, just started laying. Yesterday, I found 2 eggs
    in the nest, it was a wood shavings nest with a liottle straw oj iur, they made a indentation and therte we re 2 eggs and to day same thing but one egg. I have 3 rir 9 month old, does that mean theeeeeeeat yewstyewrday 2 hens laid and today the other one did? And did one lay and then other laid after it got up, and today the other laid. What are thrie eggs laying habits. Do they not lay every hen every day

    Not all breeds lay an egg every day. In addition, newly laying hens are very erratic in their laying until they get settled into a routine.
