    Our easteregger has stopped laying for about a month now. It has gotten colder as we live in Michigan but all the other 5 hens are still laying. I had read on other posts trying to get ideas if this was normal and they were talking about the daylight which has gone down but since the other hens haven't slowed down I wondered if it was just something with her.

    She is eating and drink ok, she does keep to herself more but I have noticed 2 hens have been picking on her. I have added more food and water feeders as I read in a bullying post to try and help with that.

    But does anyone have any ideas on why just one hen would just stop laying? She is not broody or molting and was only born in March.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Is she molting? Does she have calcium? It might also be the decrease in light hours.

    she is not molting, she still has all her feathers. I have oyster shells out for them.
