Healthy bunch of girls, (B-O's) just stopped laying. (14 flock )Same feed and conditions. Gone from 6 to 10 a day to nothing for the last two weeks.
Any thoughts ?

Chris.

Yes they are molting, I guess that would explain it. I'm new to chickens as well so I wasn't sure what to expect.

Could be molt, less daylight, and with orpingtons somebody might have stashed a nest if they free range all or part of the day. Might even be a combo of the three things. How old are your girls?
