We adopted a red star when she was as about 5.5 months old and laying. She laid normal for 3-4 days and announced her eggs, then for maybe 2 weeks either no eggs, shell less or thin shelled eggs. She's been laying normally and consistently again now for a few weeks but she never makes any egg songs anymore. Does anyone have laying hens that do not announce their eggs? Other than that she seems quite happy readily jump on people's laps.
