    I have been getting eggs now out of both my hens for about 2.5 to 3 months so they are relatively new to laying but not super new. They are both speckled sussex but each has there own egg color (one is slightly more brown than the other) so I can always tell who laid what. I get an egg a day from each of them with a break day about every two weeks. The hen that has not laid in three days had given me two double yolkers I thought I would fine a big double yolker yesterday but i didn't. No egg today either. Should I be worried, I have heard of hens being egg bound could that be it or am I being paranoid. She is walking around eating and acting normal??

    I hope it is nothing odd because my BR hen laid daily for 2 months and it has now been 13 days since the last one...I'm getting worried too.

    Very odd indeed...
    My brahmas quit for almost three weeks, then I got four eggs the next week, and this week I haven't gotten a thing!

    That's a total of four eggs in five weeks from four hens.

    My new hatch of silkies should be laying next month, then the rocks should start in january.
