Hens will lay eggs all by themselves when they are old enough. Many breeds start at about 5 months old and can continue for years but production usually declines after the first 15 months. When a chick reaches 5 months old they are fed a seed mix called "mash" which has the right mix of proteins and nutrients to encourage egg production.

Older birds do not lay peewee eggs. Young hens and smaller breeds of hens lay the peewee eggs and the older the hen, the larger the eggs are. Hens tend to lay more eggs in the spring and summer.

Most breeds of chickens lay eggs every day. They lay those eggs whether or not they are fertilized. If the flock of chickens has a rooster then chances are the eggs the hens lay are fertile.

Four hens have the potential to lay four eggs but this is not always the case. Old hens will eventually stop laying eggs, sick hens may not lay any eggs and hens even in prime condition may be molting or may just be a slow laying breed. There are many reasons why four hens may not even lay one egg in a single day.
