My pulet stopped laying egg :(

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi...

My pullet started laying egg around 20 weeks old (end of January 2016). She lay eggs everyday, and only missed probably 1 or 2 times.
But she stopped laying since March 31st, 2016 sad.png I live in Indonesia (tropical country), so sun light is not an issue here.

Is this normal ? or should I worry about it ?
Thanks a lot

Do you free range? Any chance she is laying her eggs outside under brush or in tall grass, etc.? Some girls will like to hide their eggs.

How does she act, any problems with eating/drinking or bullying?

Does she have access to oyster shell or some other calcium source?

I free range but in a limited area (see attached pic) and there is no bush where she can hide eggs.

And for the past 2 months, she always come back to the nest and lay her eggs there. She can open the coop door, and enter by herself big_smile.png
Yes, I gave her egg shell and mealworm (1x / week) in addition to special layer feed.

Lovely space you have for your flock:)

She may be taking some time off.

If she is eating, drinking and pooping well and shows no sign of distress ( swollen abdomen, going off feed, lethargic, etc.) then I would just keep an eye on her. Hopefully she will start laying soon.
