    Maybe we need some more info - how old is she? Are you sure the bird is a female, not a male? Any additional info you can share might help get some replies from the folks on here who really know chickens. Good luck!

    Sorry it was a bit late last night when I wrote post she deffo female she been laying eggs she's around 6 months old infact she's only been laying for around 4 to 5 weeks other than the problem I've posted she totally normal whatever normal is for a chicken lol [​IMG] she has not laid a egg for a couple of days but that seems normal for how she been since starting plus she seems to lay double yolkers regularly other chickens who are of the same age are fine except my barmy black rock who is driving both the light Sussex and my daisybell mad as she gone stupidly broody other than that all is good
    Only thing I should mention in here in the UK and the weather has changed quite dramatically it has turned quite cold hope this helps
