How long roughly it takes for a hen to lay an egg once she feels the urge?
It depends on how long she decided to wait to climb into the nest box. Some of mine jump in 10-15 minutes before its ready to pop out, others will sit for an hour or so. I'm not an expert on this. I'm just going by what I see my girls doing. Sometimes mine just like to psych me out. They go in the nest box for a bit, then jump out squaking like a banchee - and there's no egg.
We got our first egg yesterday and it must have taken her 3 hours of pushing and squacking before she had success. Anxious to see what today brings.
well i am still waiting for my first egg.
