    We have a Game Hen that is young, maybe 8 months and she only lays every now and then. We recently went a whole week without nothing, I mean 8 days nothing. I have seen hens that lay every other day or every three days, but she is all over the place. Is this normal or is there something wrong?

    Also, we have a Sumtra Hen and a Hamburg hen together and someone is laying, it is a medium white egg, but no idea who is momma... she is also laying odd.

    Could it be a food problem or a us problem?? Any advice?
