    one of my JG hens laid eggs for about a week an I havent gotten a single egg in 3 weeks... Is this normal? Bigger question is this healthy?! Their 20ish weeks (Both hatched mid April)...

    Did the hen just start laying recently? If so, it's normal to have them "mess up' their laying schedule from time to time [​IMG]

    wow! 2 months?! what breed is she? Im thinking it might have happened because my girl is a Jersey Giant and was "more mature" then her sister who is the same age as her so now she's stopped to try an mature more on the pace she should be.​

    My most favorite girl "Sally the First" gave me my first ever home grown egg about a month ago and nothing since. My second best girl "Sally the Second" sang the eg song a couple days ago, but all for show. I don't really expect another egg until spring.

    Our egg season is coming to an end also.
    And the 4 dozen eggs in my fridge show how much I care about eggs [​IMG]
