    I only have 4 hens but none of them have given me an egg for more than 2 weeks. I am in N Fla and weather has not changed much here. Nothing has changed in the hen house, yard or feed, they do not appear sick in any way. They eat and drink same as always. What could be the problem? I am thinking of getting rid of them if they dont lay, they are only 2 yrs old.

    Daylength has changed. That and a possible molt may have caused the reduction in egg laying.
