And then introduced some baby chicks around a month ago. 3 of my chickens stopped laying eggs- I assumed they were upset that they had to share their space
With new Chicks, but figured they'd get

Sorry about your hen. I have lost chickens around that age who never showed symptoms of anything being wrong. Sometimes they can have subtle signs that we don't notice. They might be egg bound, have a crop or gizzard blockage, be suffering from a heart or other organ failure, or other unknown reason. Getting new chickens can sometimes bring in unknown diseases, but without getting a necropsy by your state vet or a poultry vet, it is hard to know the cause. Sometimes doing a necropsy yourself can rule out a few common problems.
