One of our chickens is just finishing her first molting and she had not laid since she started. But our other chicken (a Rhode Island Red), who didn't molt (and still isn't molting) did not lay either. (We have searched and searched for eggs to no avail. There aren't too many places an egg could hide in our yard and by now they would be stinking in our Florida heat. They just haven't been laying.) It's been over two weeks since we had an egg from either one. Now our little RIR is acting funny. She isn't eating and is walking slow and her little bum is filthy. She keeps wiggling her tail up and down. Before she stopped laying she gave us enormous eggs. I'm so worried about her. I'll try the warm bath thing today and see if that helps. It will kill my youngest daughter if something happens to one of our chickens. They are her pets and she loves them so much. Diet wise I think we have done everything right--they get the 16% layer feed mixed with oyster shell and we also make sure they get grit. We supplement alternately with a bit of yogurt, bananas, veggie scraps, corn, and they always have fresh water. Also our little Rhodey isn't talking like she usually does. She always been so vocal and now she's quiet. Does she sound egg bound to you all??
