One egg appeared just over a week ago from one of our 4 hybrids (16 weeks and 19 weeks old) - nicely presented in the nest box - but now nothing for 8 days. Have searched everywhere and can't find any more. Is it possible that a young chicken would lay one and then stop for a while?

Being that their new layers she this is very common. With the oldest being only 19 weeks old be glad you got the one egg!!!

Yeah, shouldn't be too long now.

Imp- expect things to be a bit erratic to start.
