my hybrid hens are 10 months old. they have been on layer pellets from the day we got them. i have not changed the make or anything. there have not been any predators. there run and coop have no changed. in fact i am pretty certain everything is the same. they have just stopped laying quite suddenly for the last 3 weeks now. one of them has also lost all feathers from her neck. the other one is losing them all over which is not quite as noticeable. i have read that they do not molt in the first year. any ideas why they have stopped laying and for the feather loss. unfortunately i brought them for eggs and this is no longer happening. they have a good life and as i said above nothing has changed so i am stumped.
