2 days ago my son saw our Americauna (sp?) sitting in a flower bed next to one of our out buildings and went to investigate...what do ya know, he found one freshly laid blue egg and 3 previously laid eggs. well, being new chicken owners and those being our first eggs, you can imagine the excitement at our house. we immediately went to the coop and found on of the RIR's in the nesting box and I actually watched her lay an egg. SO exciting for us!!! now, 2 days later, we haven't seen another one yet. I've decided to keep them in the coop for most of the morning so that they get used to laying in the boxes but still nothing. is it normal for them to lay their first eggs and then take a break?
