    It has been 10 days since my hen layed an egg, why hasn't she layed another one. I know she's not eggbound but why hasn't she layed?

    Could have been a false start or she's hiding them. Just gotta be patient.

    I'm dying over here. Not only am I waiting for nother egg, I have 25 chicks (Cochins, most colors) on the way and their not going to be shipped until september 26th. I just wish that hen would lay again.

    Hang in there! You should have eggs soon. I read another thread that other people have experienced the same amount of long wait after their first egg.
