Hi Jade,

I have a couple of hens that do not lay when they are not with a male. Some will lay no matter what, but some need the company of a mate to get going. I have a hen that prolapses every so often, so I give her long breaks. I have had her in a cage by herself for a couple of months, and even though she has a single male in the cage next to her, she hasn't laid an egg this whole time. But when I put her back with her mate, she will begin laying within a week.

That has been my experience. I think yours will lay too when she has a mate. You have a nice size cage for them, they will do well in it.
