Both chickens went from laying 2 a day to not laying in 6. What could be wrong?

I only have two chickens and they both were laying pretty consistently.  Now all of a sudden they BOTH haven't laid in 6 days.  The only thing that changed was I moved their coop to a different spot in the yard.  Would could be wrong?

Yes, moving the coop was a big deal to them. stress will upset egg production.

You upset their world, and they will take some time to recover.  Patience!  Mary

Do you free range? They may be laying out in their range area, maybe even by the old coop.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
