    I have a small red hen. I don't know what breed I'm thinking sexlink. She laid her first egg about a week and a half ago. She laid 3 eggs over the course if 4 days then nothing since. Should I be concerned? She seems to be active and eating and drinking regularly.

    I wouldn't be concerned. Since it's her first few eggs, she might be taking a break because laying eggs takes lots of energy. Especially since she just started.
