    Hi
    I've been keeping chickens for a few years now & have a flock of 23 chickens and 5 keets
    My question is that my cream crested leg bar goes into the coop sounds as tho she has laid but hasn't.
    Should I be worried? She seems fine in herself, she's always been a bit quiet and not much of a mixer, but seems to be eating and drinking as normal.
    Any suggestions welcomed
    Thanks

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    How old is your hen? If she is a pullet at point-of-lay she may be getting ready to start laying soon.

    Hi All
    Thanks for the warm welcome from sunny London Town
    I've used the site for research but decided to join today to ask my question
    Diamond (The girl in question) seemed brighter today, still no egg, I know this because shes the only one I have
    I'm not worried about her laying, it's her choice, I've not come across any girls letting me know that they've laid but not having actually done so before, should I be worried

    [​IMG] Has anything happened of late, that changed her daily routine? Chickens can stop laying when they are stressed. Is she beginning a molt? Is there any chance she is egg bound?

    Hi Drumstick Diva
    Nothing has changed and the others all seem ok. Silly question how would I know if she was eggbound?
    Thanks
