    About 21/2 weeks ago I had found my black astralorp in the coop and unable to walk. She never quit eating and otherwised look healthy. After a couple of days she was back to her old self running around with the other chickens. She had just started laying before she got sick but has not laid an egg in over two weeks. Can anyone tell me why and what is the likely hood that she start laying again.

    She will probably start laying again soon, as long as her comb is nice and red. With any illness, molt, broody spell, it can take a couple of weeks to start laying again after the event is over. Also new layers can be erratic at first. Good luck.
