Girls stopped laying during blizzard and won't lay! Help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have six girls.  Two stopped laying in fall during their molt (2 yrs old) and four that were hatched last July.  My four young girls were laying really well up until the blizzard we had in January.  I had the coop wrapped in tarps and they were confined for a few days, but since then everything is back to normal except the laying!  I have one girl laying and that is it.  They eat well and are happy girls, but why aren't they laying?  I figured the stress of the storm stopped them, but it has been 7 weeks!

Some hens will start and stop laying sporadically during the season. Sometimes there's no apparent cause.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
