    now, nothing. My 20-week old EE laid TWO blue eggs at once on the first try on Aug. 8th. Then 2 days later, another egg. Since then, NOTHING. NADA. ZIPP-O. She still does the chicken squat.

    Meanwhile, my BO, the same age as the EE, has been an egg-laying machine, starting on Aug. 9th and she has laid SEVEN eggs now. The last 5 days in a row she has laid. She is quite red in the face and her wattle is so large that it's now a "comb-over" HAHAHAHAHA I could not resist! [​IMG] She is the ONLY one who will NOT do the chicken squat, and she is my best layer! [​IMG]

    My Australorp, same age as the others, has not started yet but has been doing the chicken squat for 2 weeks now, and is very red in the face.

    SO the question: What gives with my EE? Why did she stop? I'm so confused! [​IMG] [​IMG]
