I have a 9month old red star. She laid faithfully for 2 months and about five weeks ago she completely stopped! I have checked her over head to toe and she is perfectly healthy and not molting. We live in Georgia so it is still warm here 70-80 degrees and certainly was warm back when she stopped. The weird thing is she goes into the nest box everyday for about 30-45 minutes and comes out singing the egg song. Poor girl thinks she is laying an egg, but she is not!!! Her diet has not changed and she is as happy as can be. I chose the red star for their reputation of laying no matter how hot or cold or length of day, so you can understand my disappointment. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what is going on?
