Magpie hen has laid an egg consistently everyday since 8-13-11. She missed 8-17-11, and now has missed the past two days. I know they only lay about 220 eggs a year, so are going to have "off days", but since I am new to this, is anything likely to be causing it. Light I wouldn't think would be an issue since since well over 12 hour per day, although getting less each day. Anyone have experience with Magpies and laying? (And she hasn't laid and hidden it somewhere, I have thoroughly checked the pen she has been in. And she hasn't had the opportunity when they have been out foraging as I watched her No food changes. She's still laying eggs with quite hard shells. Still getting free choice oyster shell, lots of greens and foraging time. Appears to be behaving normally. No apparent injures, bulges, discomfort???? Anyone with Magpies, do they normally lay through the winter? She will be six months on 9-11-11.
