    When a chicken is in it's full egg laying age, how long does it take a chicken to lay another egg after she lays one? I"ve heard there are about 30 hours between eggs, but I've never really had it confirmed. I'm trying to figure out how long between eggs for a normal chicken. I have Plymouth Barr Rocks so they are pretty good egg laying chickens.

    Don't quote me on this but I think it's 25-26 hours.
