    I have four chickens. All four have just stopped laying. I have not gotten one egg in the pass week. They don't seem to be nesting. Things to know about my chickens. Hatch Feb 2, 2009. Started laying June 2009. In July and August I was getting one egg a day just about. They don't seem to be molting, as in they still have their feathers. I am new at the whole chicken thing, so any help would be great.

    Thanks

    What do you feed them?
    Is it possible they have found a hiding spot for the eggs?

    The beginning can be rather sporatic, do you know which of your girls was laying the egg every day? Heat has an effect on my hens, and they won't lay until I bring out plenty of fresh water. This past week not a one layed an egg for four days in a row. I think they were just exhausted from the summer. Now I'm getting four of five eggs again. Hens can be a puzzle, for sure.[​IMG]
