    I have 4 hens and 1 roo. I used to live in MT, but since took a job in Colorado. The chickens moved with me. I'm sure that was traumatizing for them all. New coop and everything here in Colorado. But that was 2 months ago now since they've been in the new coop. The chickens are all 2 1/2 years old. All 4 hens were regular layers. Now I only have 1 who is laying. And randomly, one day, one of my Araucanas laid an egg, and hasn't since. Any advice? Just want to make sure it's just stress from the move, and nothing more!

    You are looking at a combination of things....
    The move, a small move might be a week or two, but this is huge move... so maybe a month or two.. but combine that with the season?
    I think that is it for your regular egg laying until spring.

    Get a couple of ready to lay, under a year old, pullets to give you eggs for the winter.

    Good Luck

    Been there, done that. I'm pretty sure they will start laying again next year. It's not unusual at all.
