My Easter Egger has stopped laying

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello and Help:

 

I have an EE who is 1 year and 2 months.  During the month of December she understandably stopped laying but it is now June and she still has not laid an egg.  Is this something that is typically with this mixed breed chicken?  She is my skittish chicken, but seems to be relatively content.  Any experience shared with this babies would be appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Tamara

Is she still molting? It could be a health problem, I'm pretty sure it's not typical of mixed breed chickens to stop laying for no reason, she if her behavior has changed

I'd recommend checking her over thoroughly for mites or lice. Are your other girls laying? How many birds do you have? Have there been any changes (adding or losing birds, moving, ect.) or predator issues?

Barring any problems like those listed above, sometimes they just need s break. I have an EE who does on occasion, just quit laying for a week, or sometimes a month for no apparent reason 🤔

stress can also affect egg production
