Stressed or eggbound????!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

HELP! I brought two new girls into my flock a little over a week ago.  My other two started laying the week before.  Now my one hasn't layed but maybe 1 or 2 eggs since.  It has been about a week since her last egg... Do you think this is from bringing in the new girls.. or do you think she is egg bound... she is acting very normal.  I bring out a bag of treats and she is the first one at the end of the run waiting...

 

HELP PLEASE!

If she's acting normally, but not laying, she's most likely just stressed out from all the changes in the flock. It's very normal for them to stop laying when ever big changes happen. Adding two new flock members is a really big deal for them. Just be patient.

How long do you think it will take her to bounce back?

I am pretty patient.. b/c the funny thing is ... i don't eat plain eggs... I will cook and bake with them.. but i was just worried about her if she is was sick..

Some only take a few days to adjust, some take over a month. It all depends on the individual bird.
