    Hickety Pickety hasn't layed an egg in over a week-- I can't blame her-- her man went mean, and he had to go, then we gave her 18 teenagers to live with! She's been mean at the feeder-- maybe not mean, just saying, "I'm the grown up, I'll eat first, thank you very much!" She has been a good almost every day layer (our only layer currently). How long can I expect this strike to last?

    Give her time she may need to adjust to her loss of her man and her new roommates.
