We're very new to having backyard chickens... We bought 3 this past Easter and they've been happy and flourishing with the run of our yard. I'm not sure what happened, one of our girls was either attacked by our dog or possibly even pelted with a rock (neighbor kids ). Either way, she was injured and I was pretty certain dead (this was about 2.5 weeks ago). She's recovering well (i think?) and is back to her weird self, but hasn't started laying again. How long do I give her to start laying before I become really worried? I've been keeping a close eye on her, as she's the runt and gets picked on regularly, but is there anything else I can do for her or is this just a wait and see?
