    Quote:If your hens are free ranging all day and evry day watch for eggs outside in grass or hidden areas,if you are sure that they lay only in nesting boxes then really no one can do anything about thier behavier just let mother nature takes it's curse.
    Best luck

    Apparently a lot of people's EE's seem to start laying pretty late anyway. So, your girls probably just aren't ready. As far as the one egg every 3 days, some are just not as frequent layers as others. I have one girl who will lay for several days then go on a two or three day "vacation".
