    Hello,

    Last Friday, my hen and my rooster mated and she laid an egg on that Friday afternoon. Definitely the egg couldn't have been fertile. But ever since that day, she didn't lay any eggs again ! And she hasn't been wanting to leave to coop as well ! Every time I opened the door, she stayed inside. And I realized she's been eating less that before and that goes for drinking water as well.

    Welcome to BYC...

    Maybe she is just stressing after "marriage"...
