    My SLW started laying a week ago or so didn't right it down dummy me....... anyway she lays 1 egg then don't lay another for a day or 2 then 1 then nothing for a couple more days........Is this normal for a new pullet? Or is something wrong with her? Should I be worried about egg laying issues. she is 20 weeks old, and only 1 other hen ios laying a BSL who lays everyday.........

    I pretty sure it's normal... At least my chickens usually start out slow. It also depends on the breed.

    Ty I am hoping so because unless she lays an egg today this will be the third day with no egg from her, weird that Suzi lays everyday but she is a BSL and known for a laying breed. So maybe thats the difference. Henrietta layed her first egg today silly girl read the thread Most unorthodox way to lay an egg...
