I have many hens and two of them are mollucans and I'm always checking them because that is one of my biggest fears , almost excessively so. Sorry you lost your baby . Welcome to the forum BW

Yes, eggbinding is always one of my worries, too. But I've never had a single eggbound hen or even one laying a soft-shelled egg.

Well, I wouldn't say you should hope for no eggs, Brandon, because eggs are normal and even desirable if they happen in season and are nicely shelled (it confirms that their endocrine system is working as it should, that they have enough calcium and vit D3 and that they feel comfortable in their environment).

I should have been more exact, I hope I never have to deal with egg bound problems.Should I be worried Loki never laid? Ive only experienced hormones with her during the summer and beginning of Winter but she has never laid and the 8 years we had Tiko she never laid either and I don't remember her ever being hormonal though we probably never noticed.

Loki is just a bit over two years old, right? I am sorry I forget the birds' ages (I am lucky I still remember some of the names :lol: ). In any case, if she is 2 or even 3, she is only now beginning to become really sexually active so no, nothing to worry about. My Sophie CAG laid her first egg when she was 15 and Ellie (which was an Elliot for 18 years) did it when she was 19.

Wow so shouldn't people be breeding until they are really sexually active? Loki will be 3 soon, Is there any reason why some lay so young.
