    Is that normal? My BR started laying on the 8th and has not missed a day! She is the best chicken ever! Then 2 days ago someone else layed cause I found another egg later in the afternoon. Not sure if it was my other BR or my brahma (they are both ready, huge red combs, squat, and 2-3 fingers in space between pelvic bones). But since then it has just been Penny. I know this because she is a machine that lays every day between 9-11. I see her in the box every morning and 30 minutes later....egg.

    So- is it normal for a new layer to skip 2 days or more before the 2nd egg comes?
