Odd RSL behavior...hard to explain


Premium Feather Member
That's the way mine stand when they are having laying issues & that's when I pop a calcium citrate in them. If you don't have any calcium a tums will do too.

Of course it's the next day now, how is she doing today?

I will never own RSL again, mine always have issues laying. :(
As of 545 this AM she had improved! She jumped out of the coop and ran right over to the food and water. She has been hanging out roosting in the run with the other hens which is good. I don't see the odd standing and staring so far this morning.

It was so scary and from online research (which can be both helpful and terrifying! Lol) I was worried she might not make the night.

For the calcium citrate, could you tell me the brand you use and the dosage?

Thank you!

That's great! I'm glad to hear it.

This is what I use:

Just any brand of Calcium Citrate D3 is fine. I think they're like 600mgs maybe? When someone has an issue I give them 1 pill a day till they lay a normal egg.
