The Rhode Island Red is very good at laying eggs – it is hard to surpass them in output and continuity. The Rhode Island hen will usually start to lay around 18-20 weeks, although some will start as early as 16 weeks old.    A good hen can lay 200-300 eggs each year, although other people put the egg-laying at a more modest 150-250 eggs.   In general, a Rhode Island hen will lay around 5-6 eggs/week. These eggs are medium to large and light brown in color. Eggs will increase in size over the years, as with all hens.
