Why have my hens all stopped laying suddenly?

I was getting 6 eggs a day, now 1. What's happening?

Hens usually stop laying due to stress. Sudden changes in the weather, lack of food or water, moving, predator attacks, or a new flock member. Molting and going broody can also cause no eggs. Has any of these things happened recently?

If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. But If you look at Christ, you'll be at rest
