    Hello everyone, can anyone think of something I can do for my little hen? She used to lay eggs in just about half an hour or so but these past few days it has been taking her about 3 hours. Can that be normal sometimes? She does get calcium and the eggs she lays look good, no thin shell and no blood streaks on it. Any advice? I'm a little worried about her. [​IMG]

    She's probably starting to go broody, eventually she will stay in there and screech when you try to move her.
