Both chickens went from laying 2 a day to not laying in 6. What could be wrong?

    I only have two chickens and they both were laying pretty consistently. Now all of a sudden they BOTH haven't laid in 6 days. The only thing that changed was I moved their coop to a different spot in the yard. Would could be wrong?

    Do you free range? They may be laying out in their range area, maybe even by the old coop.
