My 21 hens have stopped laying and I have two egg customers needing eggs next week! Help!
If all stopped at once, then something drastic probably happened.Yes, ALL 21 hens have stopped laying!!! I was getting 10-15 eggs a day! I have noticed that the neighbor's Great Dane has come into our yard twice but I have chased her away. Of course I obviously don't sit outside all day watching my chickens.

One good scare can stress them into stopping as they don't feel safe......could take days to months for them to get over it.
If you were only getting 10-15 a day maybe some are already molting or stopped because of the low light of winter.
There are many possibilities...and chickens can be fickle.
