    Hi There,

    My amber hen has stopped laying eggs after laying for two weeks. Its has been 9 days now and no eggs. She is 25 weeks old, well, seems happy enough. No signs of any problems. She eats layers mash and corn in the afternoon. She doesn't seem to be moulting. What could be the possible explanation?
    Please help as I am worried that there is something wrong that I don't understand and will find out too late

    Thanks

    Silky

    I hope you get help soon. [​IMG]

    Have you looked at her bottom/vent to see if you can see anything? Feel her belly area (gently) to see if you feel any lumps in there...i wonder if she could be egg bound?
