    I have 8 chickens that I got as a new owner on March 22, they were supposed to be 3 weeks old. I was beginning to worry about them but one of them started to lay last Monday. She has laid one every day except Sunday. So she's doing good. Another started to lay on Thursday, skipped Friday and laid on Saturday. Nothing since. Should I worry or is this normal for new layers?

    Absolutely normal for a new layer. It takes them awhile to get all the kinks worked out of the system.
