    One of my 23 w/o white cochins just started laying last Tuesday. We got 2 in a row the first 2 days, 1 2 days later, and she hasn't layed anything in 2 days. How often do cochins lay?

    Thanks,
    Sonja

    we only have one cochin girl at the moment of laying age...she lays about 4-5 a week.
    We have 4 mutts (cochin daddy mixed with the rest of our flock) but they wont be laying till spring I bet.

    My cochins will usually lay one a day. They do have decreases when the weather is bad, it's too hot or too cold, and they stop when they are moulting. They will also stop for a few days when I move them around.
