    What kind of behavior is normal? Do they act weird, or get runny poops? Do they seem a little distressed? What kinds of things have you observed?

    One day they dont lay eggs, the next they do. No behavior change, no physical symptoms.

    Oh yeah, and they don't start to lay exactly at 6 weeks of age, so don't get upset when they're 43 days old and you still don't have a single egg.
