    From the problem you stated, I calculated that one hen can lay just one egg per day.

    So if that is the case, five hens will then lay 6 multiplied by 5 eggs in 6 days which brings the answer to 30 eggs.

    There is no way to answer this question, as different hens lay a different amount per day.

    30. Each hen is laying 1 egg a day. For 6 days that´s 30 eggs. Assuming they all lay every day

    I would think that the answer would be 30, if all of the hens are performing the same, but if they are anything like employees, they most likely are not!

    I would have thought that since one hen lays 2 eggs in 2 days, that's 1 egg per day so 5 hens lay 30 eggs in 6 days. However this is probably a trick question and the hen is likely to be a transvestite cock and doesn't lay any eggs!

    First Assumption: the hens will not lay more than one egg a day.
    From what you told us, it implies 1 hen will lay 1 egg in 1 day.
    Second Assumption: the egg laying rate of the hens are the same.
    Therefore 1 hen will lay 6 eggs in 6 days (1 egg per day time 6 days).
                 5 hens will lay 30 eggs in 6 days (1 egg per day times 6 days times 5 hens)
    So, I will also go with the answer 30 eggs.

    To be very frank with all of you,

    I don't know answer, my assumption is also 30 eggs,  recently read this question somewhere so i thought to ask, may be it is tricky question, lets see what is others answers.

    I would say that is one hen two eggs in two days, it either laid one egg per days or two eggs in one day at that rate five hens assuming they have a comparable egg laying rate as the first hen will lay thirty eggs in five days.

    I know however there is trick to this question and obvious answer is not always the correct one,

    6 days is 144 hours, and since (physiologically) no hen can lay more than one egg every 26 hours, there is no way you can get more than 27 eggs.
    Yes, you can get one egg a day from a hen, for a few days. If the hen lays at 8 am one day, ten the next, and noon the third, on the 2 pm on the fourth, and the next she will not lay. (Chickens do not lay eggs in the very late afternoon or middle of the night. If you live above the arctic circle in the winter I have no idea what your poor chickens much go through.)
    Source: I asked one of my chickens. (She is really helpful with these types of questions)

      This makes sense.  I have noticed my hens are not on a timeclock. In other words, they don't lay at the same time every day.

    All things being equal the answer would be "not quite 30 and probably closer to 24", but some breeds of chicken are better layers than others, and young chickens lay more than older ones. They lay fewer during cold weather and more in the Spring and Summer.
    I currently have three hens (all different breeds) . Two are young, one is quite a bit older. I usually get two eggs a day, sometimes three, and sometimes only one.  Now and then a Blue Jay gets in the coop and destroys an egg.
    So if anyone were trying to calculate how many eggs they would get in six days, they would have to consider all of the variables.

    As long as this is not a trick question, I'd say the potential is there for the five hens to give (or lay) two and a half dozen (30) eggs.
