    My Golden Comet started laying on May 4th. She laid an egg each day for 6 days straight. She took one day off and started again. She laid for about 3 more days and then stopped and hasn't laid since. She stopped the day after we brought two new chickens into the family. I'd love to read any insights you veterans may have about her behavior. Thanks![​IMG]

    I'm not an expect by a long shot, but I do know that change will sometimes upset the laying schedule. The addition of your new chickens could be partly to blame. Also, it sounds like your girl is a new layer. They are notoriously erratic for the first couple of weeks. Give it a little time.

    Thanks! I'll be patient as long as I know she's alright.
