    im going to assume that its typical for a hen to lay her first egg and not lay again for a few days. all other 3 hens have layed an egg every day since their first one. got an additionl egg on wednesday and assume my final girl layed, but have only gotten 3 eggs yesterday and today. this is normal, correct?

    Yes, it is normal. Plus she could be laying her second egg and one of the other girls taking a day off.
