    We got 4 hens almost two weeks ago. At first they were laying 1-3 eggs a day. All of a sudden only one egg in the middle of 7 days with no eggs. They have access all the time to layer feed and fresh water every day outside in their run. I noticed today they aren't even sitting in their nest boxes anymore. Help!

    I got a new hen a week ago. I didn't expect her to, but she laid eggs on the first, second and third day. Those were my first eggs ever...very exciting. Now, we've had nothing for the last 4. I figure she's just adjusting to her new digs.

    Quote:I got a chicken from a friend & put it in a cage. Then put it in the back of my truck drove 70 miles & the chicken laid her first egg ever in the cage.
