    One of my EEs was a very good egg layer when about two weeks ago, we stopped getting green eggs! I just brushed it off after the first couple days but now I am concerned, she is only a year old. Any explanations?

    She is probably starting to molt.

    There is no evidence of feather loss on her.

    Well the timing would certainly be right. I have one that is losing feathers at an alarming rate, yet if I wasn't finding them around, there would be no telling just by looking at her. If she's not molting, and not broody, that would point to some kind of illness or outside stressing factor. Then again, sometimes they just take a break.
