    Got my first two eggs over the weekend but not one today. Is it normal for their egg laying to be erratic the first few days? She dug out the nesting box today but I couldn't find an egg hidden anywhere else.

    yes and sometimes longer...they have to get their system going...and if it is hot ,or to dark or to light, or to Anything...it can stress them and the;y will not lay that day....

    Out of all 6 of my large hens, I usually get four eggs a day. No one lays everyday
