    Last week our EE layed her first egg. She hasn't layed any more since. The other 11 have been doing quite well. 14 eggs in the last 2 days.
    Does anyone have any idea why Flicka isn't laying?

    That will happen at first....I'm sure she'll start up again. It's just because she's a pullet.

    1. She's new at it & is not yet 'regulated.'
    2. Anything changed since she laid the 1st egg--new dog, new chicks, move coop, etc? Some chicks can take time to adapt to change.
    3. Check her for lice/worms?

    That's about all I can think of right now, although there is a handy little 'sticky' at the top of this section's page...I just forgot to go there first to copy the link.
    FWIW--My oldest EE started laying in July, also STOPPED laying in July...no biggie 'cause I did some re-arranging & cell assignments...she just started laying again on Labor Day!
