Why have my hens all stopped laying suddenly?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
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?
