    My chicken layed her first egg on Friday am, another Saturday pm. Now, none since then. Is this typical?

    Laying is tough work, must have needed a break. What breed is she? Consistant layers don't even lay every day but some get close. I have some that lay 5-6 week and some that lay 2-3.

    They slow down when they get ready to molt, or when they get broody they just sit there and give you a grumpy face.

    Hi, My newbies lay 2 days on and 1 day off or 1 day on and 2 days off. The oldest layer is getting a bit more regular than the others and its only been 3 weeks for her. Be patient they'll get the hang of it. [​IMG] And Congrats on your first eggs!!
