    This is entirely normal for a bird first starting to lay.

    That does not make the pattern you are seeing with this bird abnormal - each bird is an individual. The fact remains that what you are noting with this bird is not unusual or abnormal for a newly laying bird.

    Totally agree, all hens are different, and there really wouldn't be anything you could do for your hen anyways, you can't alter what's happening internally.

    What are you feeding?
    Do you free range? May be laying out in range area.

    What breed is pullet?
    Some breeds, and individuals, do not lay as well as others.
