  1. My new hen, which is an old english game hen, had been laying 1 egg at least every other day. it has been about 4 days now, and no eggs!! there is a rooster with her (got them as a pair, named them Romeo and Juliette) she had just started laying when I got her, I got a tiny little egg one mourning, then at least one normal size egg almost daily. should I be concerned? she is acting normal, running around, etc. is this normal for new layers?

    I wouldnt be concerned yet. Sometimes they need break. Is she moulting? Feed changed?

    I have one layer that went from laying every other day to now once a week.
  3. I don't think she is moulting, and nothing else has changed!! I am really waiting for babies, because I heard the old english hens are really good mommies!!
