    I have 5 chickens (three RIR 1 light sussex 1 speckled) 4 of which are laying (all except the speckled) and i used to get 4 eggs a day. But recently in the past week ive only been getting 3? I know my light sissex is laying and suki (RIR) because ive seen them lay. is there a way to tell which of my RIR are egg bound?

    I dont think one is egg bound, you would know by how she acts. Productiojn is just down or someone is taking a break or molting. Or not getting enough light. I have 5 hens that are laying and i get 1-4 eggs a day your birds are fine.

    I think its Cookie, She keeps going up and acting asthough shes going to lay, then when i go out 5 minutes later shes back down in the run. And no egg
