    I had a bantam EE that laid one and then had time off also. What type of Bantam is she? Some breeds only lay three a week during longer days which we certainly do not have right now. If she is acting fine chances are she is fine. If she stops eating, becomes lethargic, or depressed looking she could be egg bound. Definately research this topic just in case she needs some help.

    Good luck and WELCOME!!!

    Thanks she is a amerucana bantam the other one lays an egg each day but she did just one and no more. I had to put two big birds down because they were egg bound they were a cross between a Rhode Island red and a white leghorn. I did not know my bantams where bantham when I bought them, I am very new to this chicken raising but love it.
    I will keep an eye on her they are really cute.
