2 of my girls are laying consistently, but they are a Golden Sex Link, and a White Leghorn. The Maran.... Well, in a month, she's given me 8 eggs. She'll sit on the nest for an hour and not lay. She'll sing the egg song, and not lay. She'll lay one egg, and not again for 3 days, or 4, or 5. I know Marans aren't prolific layers, but oughtn't her first year to be her best? And she just started.
