    Usually around noon. I go out after the human lunch and offer scraps (if I have them) and go check food and water levels. There's usually an egg when I'm doing my chicken chores.

    Most of mine have finished laying by mid-morning, but I get the occasional straggler in the afternoon. Typically it is my Australorp who *just* started laying and hasn't quite figured it out yet [​IMG]

    Mine all get done laying by 10 am. Which is great since I leave for work an hour later and can take eggs in to sell [​IMG]
