    2 of my hens staring to lay eggs last week and the third one by the weekend they skipped one day and then continued,this week one of them hasn't lay at all, while the other two they had laying. I' m getting worried that she may got sick I made some changes I put pine shaving in the laying box, I put a bucket with nipples for water (she does drink) I put a tiny gate inside of their coop ( in their backyard) but the others two they haven't had any problem and I don't know if this one does has problem. It's normal that she will stop for this long?[​IMG]

    Don't worry at all.
    They are totally normal. Some lay everyday, some only three times a week, some hens only twice a week.
    Congrats on the eggs.

    Ok, thank you so much, I was so worried that she would be sick.
