    My hen has recently started laying but for the last couple of days after she layed an egg without a shell she hasn't been laying. She also is keeping her beak open all the time evn though it isn't very hot and she is definitely drinking enough water. I have also noticed today she has patches of pink on her feet, is this something to be worried about?[​IMG]

    Both sexes will get some pink or red shading on legs and feet when their hormones start flowing. Since she just started laying, it's most likely from this.
