    Hi all. I have a cinnamon queen that's just about 1yr. She has always laid wrinkled weird eggs, but Monday she got egg bound by a broken shell- we got it out and she is acting normal again. She has been laying in the next box the last couple of days preforming all normal signs of laying- but no eggs. Will she ever lay again? How likely is she to get rebound?

    I personally have never had an egg bound hen so I have no experience with it. I don't believe there's anything you can do to prevent it. Sex links in general seem more prone to egg laying problems due to how much they lay. Either she will be okay or not, hopefully it was a one time occurrence.
