    One of my RIRs layed her first egg last Sunday, Dec 5th and hasn't produced another one yet. Is this normal for that breed? She's about 7 months old. I'm not exactly sure. Last week was very cold, 20's and 30's during the day and teens and low 20's at night. She's been squawking like she's going to lay, but nothing so far. Any ideas?

    I am interested in this. My 24 wk BA laid her first on Dec 6th, and we are still waiting.... I just want to make sure she is okay. I guess it could be weather/light related. All my peeps have been cooped up in the new weather. II go out each day and gently take them out and walk them to the water/feed area- I am hoping they will get over this soon, as winter is a long season around here.
