Probably because of the heat or cold, it's when they stop laying. Within a month they should start, if not see a vet.

Could be two things. 1) New layers can lay sporadically until their reproductive system is settled into its new job. 2) The one that you think isn't laying actually IS laying, but has found a place out in her "free range" to do it. Go on an easter egg hunt. I bet you find them. =)
