I have flock of 6 chickens, a RIR and a Buff that are almost 2 years old and a blue Americauna, Russian Orloff, Blue Cochin and a Welsummer who are almost 1 year old. Around Thanksgiving we figured out that we had fowl pox in our flock and all but the RIR and Russian seemed to have gotten it to some degree (visible sores, not the wet pox). The Buff, RIR, Welsummer and Blue Cochin all molted at various times as well (that's done now). Our Americauna has yet to lay an egg ever. Before the pox happened our Cochin got really broody and stopped laying after she'd only been laying for about 1 month. Then our Buff and Welsummer stopped laying as well. The Russian and RIR have consistently laid throughout the mild Phoenix winter though. Now I haven't seen an egg from the Russian in about five or six days so we only have one chicken laying. Is it normal that they stopped laying with the pox? Shouldn't they now be returning to laying? What can I do to get them laying again? They eat a diet of organic layer feed, some oyster shell, some mealworms and scratch for treats and occasional fruit scraps. They free range all day, for several hours in the yard and then the rest of the day in their run. We have two good nesting boxes and a large enough Coop and run for all of them. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
