    I caught my Silver Cuckoo Maran saturday laying her first egg next to 2 other eggs which looked different in color to hers. It's been 2 days and they have not laid another egg.

    Should I worry?

    Is this normal for new layers?

    Once every three days is not out of the ordinary for brand new layer. You'll probably find another one today.

    When mine first lay they lay tiny eggs every few days for the first 2 weeks. After that they get into a routine. My first year BO pullets are laying double yolkers, go figure...

    Thanks for the replies, I really hope that is the case and is nothing serious [​IMG]
