    One of our Americaunas laid her first egg two weeks ago but hasn't laid one since. Periodically she will act very needy and make a lot of noise but never lays. Otherwise she is acting fine. Is this something to be concerned with? When should I worry about her being egg bound?

    It's completely normal for new layers to be sporadic. Some will lay every day, while others will lay an egg or two and then stop for a while. It's all part of their bodies adjusting to laying.
