    Hi my name is Emily. I have a Rhode Island Red. Her name is Peepers. She is around 6 months old.
    She laid her first egg and second egg, Saturday January 5th, 2019. She hasn’t laid again since. It’s currently Thursday January 10th, 2019. I’m worried.

    I would guess she is still working out the kinks on getting her laying game figured out.

    Curious, is she a house chicken and live in the cage?

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    It is normal for pullets not to lay on any specific schedule.
    Do you have any other chickens? Does she live in that cage?

    Hi, Emily, welcome to BYC. Egg laying at the onset can be intermittent. Are you providing her with a laying ration ?

    Hey and yes she is I got her at a livestock auction and picked her out. She fit in my purse and I put her in a hat she she slept next to me in bed till she started getting bigger and more independent. She comes out like twice a day for like an hour each. She loves her little toys. She is like another baby to me.
