I admit it - I was so disappointed - I went to check on the babies in the coop and peeked into the nest boxes - nothing! This would have been her 3rd egg. Is it unusual or normal for a leghorn pullet who has just started laying to skip a day? The changes from yesterday morning to this morning were: * I moved the 8 babies (6 week olds) into the coop last night and they slept on the floor under the manure box overhang * turned off the heat lamp that was on the lowest setting last night * cleaned and sevin dusted the coop and nest boxes before putting everyone back in place yesterday Could these changes have caused her too much stress so she didn't lay? Was it the lack of light? Or is there possibly a health issue I need to check her for? The egg she laid yesterday had some creamy substance on it - I presumed it was just normal fluids that came out with an egg. Thanks! I've never had chickens before and was looking forward to the egg-a-day thing. Oops. Guess I should have waited a bit. Went back out to check on the babies and got to watch Snow White lay her third egg. Way cool!
