    Happy friday everyone!

    One of my chooks has been laying a soft shelled egg for about 4 days, she has now stopped laying! She is at the bottom of pecking order. She been getting plenty of oyster shell and foods, seems happy and alert!

    Do you think she will ever lay again, and can i do anything to help? She is around 8 months old.

    Any advise would be great.[​IMG]

    Hopefully the break she is taking now is what she needs. If she is well and not stressed for some reason the stoppage should allow the production line to reset and restock.
