I have a 7 mo. old Sussex hen who just stopped laying about about two weeks ago. I've been reading other articles/posts on what may effect that - but the weather hasn't been that strange (yes it's fall and getting colder - low is in the 30's) - She's not molting, had access to oyster shell, and lay pellets. She's not acting sick or strange in any way. We have a BO that is the same age, and she lays as regular as clockwork. They are spoiled rotten girls and get "dinner" every night which consists of dinner left-overs, oatmeal, yogurt, yep, just about anything safe for a chicken to eat! I've checked her for mites, pests, etc.. - no snakes in the yard, or skunks - usually when she's laying we know it because the other hen suddeny starts sqwaking thinking she's been abandoned and is all alone. Any ideas as to what may be going on?? If it'll pass - that's fine - and we'll wait. I just don't want her to be sick and us not know any better. Any comments would be appreciated! Thank you!
