I have three laying right now. One lays around 9am-religiously. The second egg comes between noon and 2pm, the third lays between about 4 and 6pm. I don't mind. I find that I am at the coop every hour or so anyway cause I just love the little yard birds. I just hate to bug them. Guys, forgive me, but I know that when women work in close proximity, their cycles synchronize. Will this happen with hens?
