    It can happen, especially if she just started laying. I wouldn't worry too much.

    1st) Please wait more than 7 minutes before "bumping" your post. Thank you

    2nd) Does she growl at you when you near the nest? Is it possible she is broody?

    Problem I think you are very impatient, They get tired when they first start, give her some time she will lay.

    They only lay from 5 to 7 per week and most take a day here and there to rest. [​IMG]
