    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sumi has left you with a great link to follow. There are lots of reasons why chickens stop laying but this time of year with the cold and daylight hours dwindling, many chickens will slow down on the laying or stop all together. Definitely read through that thread or even do some posting in it.

    Enjoy your flock and welcome to ours!
