    my girl has just started laying......( 7 eggs) so far........
    this morning she seemed to look egg bound.....tail occasionally down......and her head/neck is not stretched out as normal...(hunched appearance).....
    and very quiet.....not herself......
    i have felt all underneath and can feel no egg.......
    am at a loss to what it could be........
    does anyone have and ideas or suggestions?
    thanks....

    how long ago did she lay the last egg? Is she eating and drinking? What part of the country do you live in and is this your normal laying season?

    thank you for your reply Celine [​IMG].......panic over.......
    whatever it was that was bothering her seems to have passed......she was completely ok in the afternoon...
    have just come down from the coops this morning and she is on her nest laying another egg......
    I will check her again in an hour.....

    Make sure she has access to lots of oyster shell!
