    [​IMG] from WI. Post the question in the 'Egglaying' thread and maybe give a little more info...how long no eggs, how old are the girls, maybe recent change in feed or environment? Good luck [​IMG]

    [​IMG] from England! Glad you joined us!! Are the hens going bald in places? it may be because they are moulting, so wont lay.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from North Carolina!!! I ditto the molting question. When chickens lose their feathers in the Fall getting ready for winter, they quit laying for awhile. But do try the other categories. Good luck!
