I have a 1 year old RIR that justed started laying eggs for me about 2 weeks ago. We got her from a family whose coop was raided by a critter, and she (Cheddar) was the lone survivor. She stopped laying for about 5 weeks, and now is back laying consistently. In fact as of today it is 8 days straight. The only thing is she lays anywhere from 6:30 a.m. till 3:30 p.m.. Is this normal? I've only started raising chickens about 2 months ago so I'm very new to this. p.s. Happy belated Thanksgiving to everyone!
