We went on vacation for 2 weeks. We came home and all of our chickens have stopped laying. I have no idea why?
How old are the birds, in months?
Did they get feed and water while you were gone?
Any problems reported while you were gone?
Do you free range?

Maybe they've taken a Fall break or paying you back for going on vacation without them.
On a serious note...anything change as far as when they were fed, kind of feed or anything unusual other than not laying?

Chickens are 6 - 40 months old.
Yes they were well taken care of.
No problems reported
Yes we free range, when we are at home.
Chances are the older ones(~14 months and up) stopped laying for the molt and winter break.
The younger ones may just be stressed from their schedule being changed.
