    Hello.
    So I osverved that my almost 7 month old hen go to nest box, sit down for half hour or less, as all hens do, but at the end she didnt lay nothing. 2 days in row, dont know about today, I didnt really know, cuz under she was a previous layed eggs.
    P.S, before it, so do her had a one of virus, I put her and some others in other place to warm up, etc.. at first night or morning she lay a egg while was on roost, egg drop down and braked.. In second day when I let her out of that place, I saw a yolk on ground, i guess it was from she..
    P.S.S, she start lay before ~ 2 weaks. Every day.
    P.S.S, sussex star.

    She may just be getting the hang of laying since she is new at it. Make sure she is getting layer feed and have some crushed oyster shell available in a separate container than the feed, so she can take what she needs. If her shells are thin, the eggs can break easily, and you don't want them to break inside her. I would put on a rubber glove and check just inside her vent an inch or so for a stuck egg.
