I have 7 red sex link chickens. They are about 8-9 months old. They started laying this past June. I would getting about an egg a day since June. About a week ago they chickend stopped laying. I am getting 1-2 eggs a day. I did have a rooster in with them. He died suddenly about 2 weeks ago. He didn't show any symptoms of being sick. The hens seem very healthy. No signs of being sick. Could they chickens stop laying because the rooster died? Or would they be starting to molt already? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
