    Hi everyone! Happy New Year's Eve!!

    This might be a silly question, but I'm still going to ask since I'm not really sure what's going on[​IMG]... Last week, my 7 month old hen just started to lay her first eggs and she nicely was laying 1 each day, for 6 days in a row! I was very satisfied with this, but now, this week, she hasn't laid any eggs whatsoever at all! I really don't know what is causing this, or if the hen got sick somehow... Does anyone know what could be causing this? or how to make the hen lay eggs regularly again, or why this is happening? Any help/advice would be great!!! [​IMG]

    It can some girls months to start laying regularly. It's normal. New layers are unpredictable layers.
