So I know chickens may not lay in the winter, but I've also heard of chickens being egg-bound and dying. How can I tell if my chicken is ok?? I got her in the beginning of July when she was 6wks old.. She had yet to lay a single egg. She was completely free ranging until about 3 wks ago I started supplementing with layer pellets and rice for scratch. I also added a light to the coop, last night, for an extra 4 hours of light. Shes an easter egger/barred rock mix. Any suggestions?
