    I have a white chicken I got on our Rhode Island reds chick's when we bought them (first time chicken raising) she was the last of our 2 other girls to lay. Well first off she would take go into the coop at night or to even lay her eggs. She just lays in the run area. Now we are not getting an egg from her at all or at least within the last few days. She layer her first egg about 2-3 weeks ago and has produced maybe about 5 or so eggs that we know of. My husband has looked everywhere in the run area. How can I get her to lay in the nesting boxes and is something wrong why I havent gotten an egg from her in awhile

    It is normal for a young pullet that just started laying to not be a consistent layer. You might also get odd eggs; no shell, no yolk, two yolks, etc. Just give her some time. [​IMG]
