Hi. I have 2 almost 3 year old barred rock hens. One stopped laying about a year ago. She doesn't have anything wrong physically as far as I can tell. I have done the internal check on her a couple of times over the last year just to make sure she did not have some sort of blockage. She eats fine, poops fine, runs around the yard, gets all nosy in my business when I am outside and seems fine. The other hen lays just fine. Now, the non-layer has started sleeping in the nesting box. There is plenty of roosting space so no reason to hunker down in the nest. I check on them every night and there she sits with the other one perched on the edge of the nesting box. They don't fight. Never have. No pecking, no lost feathers other than molting. I know sometimes hens quit laying for no apparent reason. Is there something I should try to get her motivated? Added protein in her food? Some sort of massage? Thanks! Robin ETA: The non-layer's comb is really small, always has been. Both comb and wattles are a bit dull, not the bright red like they used to be. Is this a sign of something wrong? Also, because she has been sitting in the nest to sleep, her rump gets a bit pasty. I clean it, but the last time I had to trim the feathers some because the poop would not loosen up no matter how moistened.
