I posted last week about my australorp Mrs Toadflax, that seems to be spending time in the nesting box and not laying eggs. (I posted under egg binding title). Best I can infer, she laid an egg two weeks ago Sunday (I believe her first) and since then I've noticed her at least five times spending a good chunk of time in the nesting box but not laying an egg. I always go check after she leaves because I'm worried about her! She's acting totally normal (as normal as I know as a first time chicken owner). I guess it's possible she's laying at other times but every time I see her in there---no egg. I'm a stay at home mom with only four chickens. We've been getting 2 eggs a day for about a week now total. Mostly we see our two orpingtons laying. We have a second australorp I've yet to see in the nesting box. But I'm worried about Mrs Toadflax. All chickens are 25 weeks old today. Help! I'm concerned. This does not seem normal!
