I got my 1st 2 eggs on 12/31 and have been getting 2-4 every day since then. I go out each morning to gather them but I find only one if that. I go out numerous times a day hoping to get more and I usually do. But my chickens seem to lay at all hours of the day, even one that lays at about 3-4pm. I thought that they would all lay in the morning. Will they ever all lay in the morning or will they keep my running to the coop every 2 hours to get more eggs? Also one more question...I have 21 hens and 5 for are laying, will the others start because they see the 5 who do lay? They are all the same age 21 weeks the day of the first eggs. And how many should I expect to get on most days? I know that was more than one question, I just love this forum thing, it is so useful!!
