    Hello all!
    I have been so excited to walk down to my coop each morning with the anticipation of those beautiful warm brown spheres. However, there have been no eggs the last four days. They only started laying a few weeks ago, but is this normal? Are they still getting into the groove of it?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

    Yes, it's normal. It's all part of their bodies adjusting to the laying process.

    I take that back. Then it would be too crowded.
