I have 3 RIRs, which I got about 5 weeks ago. The seller told me they were around 17 weeks old, and should start laying at 20 weeks. I started getting eggs 9 days ago, but the most I've gotten in any day is 2, and sometimes just 1. I think I know which 2 are laying - could the other one be a "dud"??? She was unwell last week, but has recovered and is healthy again. Could she just be a little less mature than the other 2, or could whatever illness she had have slowed her egg production? I'm not bothered too much by it, as I like them as pets, but am curious as to why only 2 seem to be laying,.
