    and nothing since. Not sure who laid it but think it was the PR.

    Is this normal?

    [​IMG] Congrats! It's one of the best feelings in the world when you get your first egg. Yes, it's normal for it to be very sporadic in the beginning until their little egg factory cycles get working better.

    Thank you! I'll just keep checking. Do they normally lay at the same time everyday? Morning, afternoon?

    My one layer started laying at 10:30 am every morning. Then She decided that she didn't like her nest box anymore and move one over and laid at 9:00 am. Two days latter she moved one over again and lays before I open the coop at daylight.
