    My eight month old Basque hen stopped laying a couple weeks ago. Can't figure why... She eats the same food as the rest of my flock, and seems healthy. What could be wrong?

    Could be this awful heat we're having maybe??

    Hmmm... that may be. It has been terribly hot around here in July. It doesn't seem to affect my other hens, as far as laying goes. Maybe the Basque is just more sensitive to heat? who knows...
