    About 2 1/2 to 3 months ago my chickens stopped laying. they layed great 2-3 eggs a day then stopped cold turkey. I have two RR and 1 Australorp. I added 2 others this last spring and they are laying just fine. Did my others catch something?
    any thoughts would help.
    Thnx

    How old, birds older than a year will quit laying to molt and recover before winter sets in.
