I don't know if this is a problem or not. I'm actually OK with letting nature take it's course. But one of my 5 hens hasn't laid an egg (that I know of) since a week before Christmas, so I thought I would bring it here, to the experts. Some background: - She is a silver spangled Hamburg - She was 1 year old at the end of February - She had been laying since the middle of July last year, but was never a spectacular layer - The other 4 hens (same age) (2 NHRs and 2 EEs) all took little "holidays" over the winter, from about 10 days to a month, but are all back on track now, keeping my "magic" egg carton full - Most days they are all allowed to free range from about 11:30 'till late in the afternoon. The other girls come back to the nests in the coop when they feel the "urge" - the Hamburg has always been the most independent of all of them. So, maybe she has a stash of eggs under the rhododendrons somewhere - if any of them were inclined to do that it would be her - but they are not let out every day, just most days, and I have found nothing from her in the nests for more than 3 months. She appears healthy, running about, dustbathing, eating well (she caught a snake yesterday!) She seemed to be going through a mini-moult in December, but that seems to be over now. As I said, I don't have any problem letting nature do its thing, but is it something to worry about when they don't lay for such a long time? These are my first chickens, and, while I am not *really* worried, any advice you can give me would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
