Our Black Australorp started laying 9 or 10 days ago. In that span we got 4 eggs but nothing for the past three days. We have scoured the run (not very large and fairly barren) and haven't found any outside (one was laid in the dirt on Saturday). She won't use the nest box at all so I'm going to work on fooling her with one on the ground. I noticed tonight she was limping and favoring her right leg. She didn't do that yesterday. Is it possible that will keep her from laying? I guess we're just trying to determine when the consistency will start for egg laying.
