    I have a buff laced Polish that just started laying. I have a Silver Laced Polish that starting laying a couple weeks before her (Velma) and Velma lays every other day like clock work. The buff laced (Bowie) laid Friday and Sunday and I haven't gotten an egg from her since. She's eating and drinking like normal and defecating like normal, but I've looked up egg binding and it doesn't look like egg binding, but I just want to make sure I have nothing to worry about! This is my very first flock so I'm always a little paranoid! I have 3 silkies as well and when they started laying they each gave me about an egg a day.
    Should I be worried about her not laying or does it take them a little while to get into a rhythm?

    Thank you!
     
  2. No need to worry. Point of lay pullets are usually haphazard at first. She'll iron everything out soon enough. Give her a month or so.

    Wish ha the best.
