My Old English Bantam Game Hen just started laying eggs. She laid her first egg on March 12. She laid her second egg on March 14. It is now March 21 and she hasn't laid anymore eggs. Is it normal for hens, when they first start laying, to stop for a week? Or is she egg bound? She is my very first chicken, so I am not that experienced with them. Sorry if this is a silly question, I am just a little worried. Just about fifteen minutes ago, I saw her do this squatting thing for a few seconds. I thought she was going to poop, but nothing came out. If she is egg bound what should I do?
