Buff orpington not laying eggs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have two hens a Rhode Island red & a Buff orpington. They are a little over a year old, my Rhode Island red lays annegg almost every day but my Buff orpington has stopped laying since she was about 9 months old. Can I do anything to get her back to laying? She isnt molting or egg bound. Shes a very healthy hen and isnt broody either.

She could be getting ready to molt, I have some that quit laying long before they molt, every hen is different, you said she was over a year old so she will eventually start molting. Some hens aren't consistent layers unfortunately, you just sound like you have a lazy hen, I have a few of those.
