My ancona stopped laying. - Page 2

post #11 of 15

How is her behavior and activity level?  Does she eat well and drink enough?   I think it would be a good idea to post in the emergencies thread because of changes to her comb/coloring.

she seems to eat and drink as much as any of the others.

We have an 8 month old Ancona who started laying at 5 months and was consistent until about 3 weeks ago, then nothing. She seems healthy and active, eating, drinking, and pooping well, but her large red floppy comb has shrunk significantly, and no eggs. I'm intrigued. We haven't wormed the flock yet, as others are laying well and we keep their coop very clean (they free range all day). Perhaps our Ana is molting?

Also - we added a brooder of chicks to the front of the coop 3 weeks ago. Perhaps that stressed her out?
