Signs a Chicken Is Going Lay it's 1st Egg. It generally takes 6 months for a hen to be capable of laying her first egg. We bought 3 hens as day old chicks on April 28th and here we are in the first week of December and they are finally laying their first eggs.
Or hens were clucking and seemed real agitated. They would try to build nests on the workbench and in the window wells. The hen in the video laid an egg about 5 minutes after I shot this. All three are finally learning to lay the eggs in the hen house.
