    I bought this chicken last autumn her comb has gone red recently and she has laid 3 eggs with blood on the outside last week. She hasn't laid for the last 3 days should I be worried.She has no blood on her and she looks great, I was worried that she might be egg bound I managed to get hold of her and have a feel of her but I'm not sure what I should be feeling for. Could she have stopped because it warmed up then we had snow this week, alsoI let them run around my greenhouse during the day so would this make any difference.[​IMG]

    My chickens produced their first eggs on July 4th of last year. I found 7 eggs on that day and I was proud of my 15 gals. Then I didn't get another egg until the end of August. I thought I had a bunch of egg eaters, but once they started back the girls found their routine, and didn't slow down until December.

    Could be you little gal is getting things sorted out in her egg factory, and production should start again in a week or so.
