In the Brooder
- Mar 10, 2009
I have a RIR who just started to lay eggs. She is 5 months old right now. Sunday morning I found her first eggs in the coop. One was small but nicely formed. The other did not have a complete shell and the shell was very very thin and flexible. I did not think anything of it at the time figuring since these were her first eggs they may not be perfect. Well now it has been over 4 days and she has not produced another egg yet. Is this normal? Do I just need to be patient? I am new to chicken raising but I thought RIR produced a large number of eggs, almost 1 a day.
