    I've got a young Delewares who starred laying then got herself stuck and trapped upside down for a few hours. After getting her unstuck, she shook it off and started back to eating and drinking with out a missing a beat. However she hasn't laid since. She's about 5 months old. Any suggestions? Should I give it more time! She seems fine. Thanks

    When did she stuck? It can take 1-3 weeks for a hen to resume laying after being stressed.

    About 2 weeks, but hat's great to hear. Kinda confirmed what I was thinking, I figured she was just stressed still. Stupid chicken! None of my other girls got stuck in that spot like that. But now it's chicken proofed. Thanks!
