Our one year old easter egger pullet, Veruca, hasn't laid an egg in 9 days - however, she hasn't acted off at all. She is active, eats and drinks like normal. She nests in the nesting box every day, but isn't laying. Since her behavior hasn't changed, and I've checked her vent, we figured she is just taking a break. Then today I noticed the poop that has an end to it that is the same color of her eggs...not sure if that is even relevant, but I figured I'd ask the forums because you all are such an amazing wealth of knowledge! Sorry for the gross picture!
