    I have 2 Ameraucanas who had been laying quite reliablyy. Since the fall came I haven't seen any eggs from the girls (none). Do they abruptly stop laying or are they hiding them somewhere? They other 3 girls I have are laying in the same place they were laying.

    How old are they, are you adding light and have you seen a lot of feathers around the coop and run?

    I am having the same issue. My 2 BOs and 2BRs are still laying although not as often but my 3 EEs are not laying at all (been a month or more since I've seen a blue or green egg. They were laying at about 2 a day between the 3 of them.

    Time of year and age of the bird.
    They'll start up again in a couple months.
