    Hello i have 4 hens about 19 weeks old. One of my columbian rock cross hens started laying about 10 days ago one egg a day but the last 2 days no eggs.I have looked around in the coop and the run but no eggs.The other have not laid yet. She is acting fine should i be worried? Is this normal? Thank you

    Many hens don't lay every day, even those that are reliable for an egg a day will take breaks or skip days. New layers take time to developed a rhythm, so give them time.
