    Hi all! I have a 21wk old leghorn (Lily) that laid a beautiful little white egg last week. I was so proud! But it's been 6 days, and she hasn't laid another one. Is this normal? My red sex-link (same age, Pippi) started laying 2 days before her and has laid an egg a day ever since, so I'm kinda worried about Lily!

    And since no post is complete without a picture, here's Pippi and her first egg!

    It may have been a practice egg or she may have a hidden nest

    Thanks for your reply! It turned out to be false alarm though - my husband just called me at work to let me know she laid another one, just as small as her first, and right next to Pippi's daily egg in the nest box. Hooray! [​IMG]
