    How old is she? They go thru their first adult molt at 14/18 months old. That is one of many reasons. Hows her diet and general appearance? Is she acting relatively normal besides not laying?

    Well it can be a number of things and where she is acting normal and its been 3weeks I would tend to doubt she is egg bound. There is a sticky at the top of the post page for all the reasons she might not be laying,you just have to eliminate them 1 by 1.
