This is entirely normal for a bird first starting to lay. 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

That does not make the pattern you are seeing with this bird abnormal - each bird is an individual.  The fact remains that what you are noting with this bird is not unusual or abnormal for a newly laying bird.

Totally agree, all hens are different, and there really wouldn't be anything you could do for your hen anyways, you can't alter what's happening internally.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

What are you feeding?

Do you free range? May be laying out in range area.

 

What breed is pullet?

Some breeds, and individuals, do not lay as well as others.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Ditto!  Some pullets will have a break in laying as their bodies adjust to laying.

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.
