    I have a beautiful mixed breed hen that lays HUGE eggs! Anyway she is 10 months old and started her laying when she was 6.5 months old. Well for the past month I have gotten no eggs from her! She is in great physical health............but NADA~NOTHING! I have had no eggs.
    Do you think anything is wrong with her????:eek:

    Maybe molting. They do it once a year. Loose all their feathers, grow them back, then go back to laying.
    Hey, they need a vacation sometime! [​IMG]
