    So I have three hens. All are around 6 months old. 2 barred rocks 1 easter egger. The barred rocks aren't laying yet. The EE has been laying for about 2 weeks. Twice she has skipped a day and then layed 2 eggs the next day, but this week she skipped 3 days and today she layed 1 egg in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, all hard shelled medium size blue green eggs. She seems pretty healthy, clean fluffy feathers around her vent & no discharge. She does look a lot smaller today than she did yesterday, but She is her usual perky self. Should I be worried?

    No she may do this for a while but she should eventually stop and go to one egg a day

    Quick!!! Send me that chicken before something bad happens.

    I will take care of her and her obsessive laying problems.

    Lol DonnaBelle...I'll quit worrying & move this over to the EE braggers thread [​IMG] One of my barred rocks was squatting all day today and barking like a poodle so I will probably have eggs out the wazoo soon. I was going to get 2 more hens for my little hen house, but I think 3 is going to be plenty.
