    I have an 18 month old California white who stopped laying in June, four months ago. The rest of my small flock continues to lay. The hen I'm concerned about eats, roosts and hangs out with the rest of the chickens. She also holds her tail in a lower position than my other California white, almost parallel to the ground. And I have had to clean dried poop off her butt a couple of times. Any ideas?
