    We have three red sexlinks who got pox...at least one or two were laying at the time. Since then there has been absolutely NO eggs from them. The pox were at least a month and a half ago-two months. Not to sure what to think about the hens. If the case is that they won't lay again we will have to get rid of them. So does pox mess up a hens reroductive system?

    I had mine go through Pox, they also stopped laying for a while......... could it be the cold came in just as they would have started laying again? My standard hens are not laying at all right now.......
