    Ok my two girls started laying two weeks ago an egg each every day then no eggs for a day then six eggs in the nest now just one of them is laying but they both look like they have eggs in them. Getting worried about the one that isn't laying don't know if she is egg bound they are acting fine.should I be worried.[​IMG]

    No the girls stay in there outside pen the don't like going out in the fields. They have a conniption if I bring them out to one of the pastures they run back home. And still no change only one egg a day,but they are happy and healthy.

    Our hens just decide to not lay for a few days or even a week sometimes..... Do they get plenty of calcium?
