This is my first post/first time raising chickens so any help would be really really appreciated. I was under the impression that chickens lay every 25 hours. so approximately every day. I have 3 hens and they just started laying. The first day they laid 3 eggs the next day: none. the next day: one over the last week I either found no eggs or only one. My question is this: When do hens start laying every day? about how long after they lay their first egg will they be laying every day? also. could it be that a snake would eat an egg? I went into a the coop yesterday and there was a big fat snake in the coop. Thanks in advance!
