    Ok so I have looked all over the forums and can't seem to find an answer, so I am really sorry in asking this knowing it has been answered before [​IMG]
    I have 4 chickens that are 19weeks (3 EE's and an RIR) 5 days ago one of the ee's layed a cute little green egg And has not layed another since. Is this normal? Thank you in advance for help.

    Congrats on your egg. This is very normal. They will not lay consistenly for awhile as their reproductive system gets into a routine, there may be soft shelled eggs and double yolkers at this time as well. As long as she's looking healthy, I would not worry about her being egg bound or anything like that. [​IMG]

    Congrats. You're on your way. They stutter a bit when starting up. It's normal.
