    I have 2 EE's and they stopped laying about a month ago. They are acting just fine and eating and drinking just fine. Should I be concerned?

    Probably not. Lots of hens take a break during the winter months and depending how old they are you might be dealing with a molt too, though it's getting a little late in the season for that.

    My EE's never lay in the winter, from about Nov until Feb.
