my hen she only lays about 2 eggs per week is that normal for the breed or is she just not so good at laying, if you have bantam cochins how many eggs do you get from a hen per week

How old is she? The younger she is the less frequent the eggs will come, once she has hit a year old she should lay a few eggs a week. Cochins are not known as the best layers.

I have a Frizzle Cochin that just started laying last week, a few days before 21 weeks. In 8 days I've gotten 6 eggs from her. I have a Dark Brahma that started laying a few days later but her eggs are a much lighter cream color. So far in 8 days I've gotten a total of 8 eggs from the both of them.
