    I have a hen and she didn't lay today and its unusual for her to skip a day so was it the rain or the sound of there old coop being torn apart
     
  2. Perhaps. But remember, no hen lays everyday. They takes breaks and that is entirely normal.

    I live in Portland, Oregon, it rains 9 months out of the year, I'd be really out of luck if they didn't lay in the rain [​IMG]. Like the others said, she sounds normal. Mine have actually slowed down during the really hot days.
