We have 8 hens all about 9 months old. We've had them since babies. We have 2 sexlinks. 1 laid well during summer and not much the last few weeks. The other was off and on during summer, never regular and hasn't laid an egg since Aug. They are all very healthy and spoiled. I'm unsure if it's the breed that's the issue or something else since the darker SL lays sporadic but the gold one doesn't lay at all. She was sick at 2 days old for about 4 days. I medicated them when another got sick and haven't had any other health issues. They aren't molting. Does anyone have any idea why they aren't laying? Could the previous illness have anything to do with it or just this breed? We have 2 RIRs, 2 Wyandottes, a P. Rock and a Australorp that lay daily.
