    I have a 6 mounth old Australorp that has stopped laying. Its been close to 3 weeks with no eggs from her. She's not moltting, and seems otherwise healthy. Could she just be taking a break?

  2. Yup. CHickens stop laying for all kinds of reasons, sometimes it's too hot, too dark, too cold, too light, too stressful, too crowded, too boring.... they're fickle birds. Be patient, if she seems healthy, just assume that she's being a brat... good luck!
