    I'm very close with my birds and recently I got very ill and had to go to the hospital. The whole time I was in the hospital my birds would not lay. My husband said he looked all in the nest box and no eggs at all. I was in the hospital for a week. The day after i got back from the hospital and visited my birds they began to lay again!! It was very sweet.it seems some how they waited for me. Strange but true..

    That's a real bond you have with your girls, all right. I certainly believe it's possible they weren't in the mood to lay until they knew you were back with the flock. Your absence affected the flock dynamic.

    I know I was so surprised it effected them at all! Very interesting.
