    I have a black giant that is only about 23 weeks old. She was laying about 4-5 eggs a weeks. All of the sudden about 2 weeks ago she just quit laying. I have no idea why. My white leghorn is still laying daily. I thought at first I may have stressed her out, because she was getting a little broody with the eggs and I shooed her off of them. However, she hasn't started laying again. Are there any suggestions or things that I could do?
    Thanks!

    Maybe she's broody? Broody hens will stop laying.
