    Just a concern regarding laying patterns.

    I have 3 Black Australorps, 2 of which were laying. The first one was laying every other day until the second one started laying. For about 3-4 days I was getting 2 eggs, then they started spacing out, one in the morning, one in the afternoon, then one at night and one in early afternoon, till now. All I am getting is an egg a day. I realize that they could just be "leap frogging" each other on the laying. It seems a little strange to me that the pattern suddenly changed. They are behaving and eating normally and look healthy so I am not sure if I have an issue or if I am reading too much into the situation.

    input would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, I must need stronger reading glasses. I thought the topic was "Erotic Laying Pattern" and I was going to report you!

    My mistake....

    But reporting someone just for having the word Erotic, in the sentence is kind of harsh.
    Unless it was a joke, then I could see that.
    I know it isnt what she typed, but still. Erotic could mean so many things, and reporting someone for it is kind of silly.
    No offence to anyone.
