    Glad to hear that! New layers can be very unpredictable in their laying.

    thanks, i thought for sure she was not going to lay again, but it did get very hot here, in upstate ny, but once it cooled down maybe that was the answer

    Yes, heat can upset their laying schedule. That was likely a reason for them not laying.

    10 weeks is long. Are there any stress factors, like molting, mites/lices, or predators?

    nope they seem happy we have just finished winter here and daylight savings has started so hopefully the linger days will help them start laying again

    Daylight savings doesn't actually change the length of daylight.
