    I have a red that just started laying. She layed for 5 days straight then just stopped. She still goes and sits in the laying box but nothing. She hasn't layed in 3 days and I am starting to ask questions. I have felt for an egg bound egg but i can't feel anything. Other than that she seems normal. Anyone have any suggestions?

    It's normal for new layers to start, then stop for a bit. It's all part of their bodies adjusting to laying.
