Barred Rock Stopped Laying

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I had some chickens and most of them weren't laying anymore so I gave all but 1 barred rock away (She was laying great, and wasn't as old). I got 14 new chickens that I put in with her and she was still laying an egg a day. Then after a few months she just stopped. She hasn't started laying again. What could cause this and do you think she will start laying again? It doesn't look like she is molting or anything like that.

How old is she? What are you feeding her? Some hens can quit for a few months, especially when it's hot or cold. Birds older than 2 years will begin to lay less and take longer breaks for the next few years before quitting completely.

She's only a little over a year old. I was feeding both layer pellets and then the chick food for a while but I am just feeding layer pellets now and scraps. Maybe she is just taking a break it has been a little warm.
