    Could she be molting? When chickens molt, they stop laying because their bodies are using lots of energy to grow new feathers.

    What do you feed them? Do they get any treats? Make sure they get lots of extra protein that helps to grow the feathers.
    Give them scrambled or hard boiled egg, plain yogurt, Boss (black oil sunflower seeds), etc.

    Keep us updated. Good luck!
