    Loretta, my Black French Copper Marans, laid her first egg at 19-1/2 weeks. Then for the next week and a half she hasn't laid again. My Olive Egger, Gigi, and Dominique, Nellie, started laying at the same time, and have been churning out the eggs. Loretta seems healthy, and energetic, so I'm wondering if her system is just adjusting? I'm so excited to have Marans eggs, and the suspense is just about killing me!

    My EE did the same thing when she first started laying. She laid a couple eggs and then nothing for a while... but then she got into the swing of things! Be patient. :)

    I have the same thing going on with one of my girls. I'm curious to see what others experiences are...
