7 month hen stopped laying - Page 3
Interesting! Our Plymouth rock is rather fat, too. However, the RIR we have that is her "sister" is even fatter and she lays an egg almost everyday. I figure if she hasn't laid in 6 months it will be time to cull her since there is probably something wrong with her. Our rooster gets along fine with her, she isn't molting, she's not old, and she isn't broody, so maybe it is a health problem.
Sometimes genetics is weird. Sometimes there's no definitive answer. It might be a health problem. It might be that her body just is not producing eggs anymore.
I'm having the same problem! I've got 2 ducks, Gogan is laying a small egg every day and Solstice stopped laying recently. They were born start of March 2015. Gogan laid her first egg 18 July and Solstice started laying late July early August. They both seem healthy ( they're eating and drinking and plenty of space to free-range). Any suggestions?
I also use DE and poultry dust. I clean coop every weekend with vinegar then I put dust everywhere both kinds. I even put it on the birds and in dust bathing areas. No other hen have any problems . Confused !!! Thank you in advance! ahes I me a year and a half old .
