    My BO started to lay last Saturday afternoon (22-23 weeks old). She laid one egg each day for three days but now has not produced for 2 days, maybe three. (So far no egg today.) Our house is being painted on the outside near the coop so it was more quiet on Sat and Sun. Could that have an effect on her egg laying? Her coop mate is a BR and has not laid yet.

    I doubt it's the painting- when they first start laying it can be pretty sporadic until they get in the "swing of things". No worries- she'll get going again soon.

    Thanks, chick4chix, that's reassuring!
