    My good old Lucky won't hardly get out of the tree long enough to eat let alone lay an egg, she is about 2 years old and this past spring went through 3 attacks by various predators. Do you think her body has been too traumatized to lay anymore?

    If she is only 2 years old I would say she isn't laying due to stress from predators...give her a few months...my opinion..
