I won't be much help but this will bump you back to the top. My chickens quit laying a couple of weeks ago and are just now starting back. There are lots of reason chickens stop. Weather changes, changes in feed, molt, going broody, and just because they "can". That last one is just to drive you crazy.
Give them a week or two before you panic.
I was told by a friend who has a friend....LOL
Anyway, she said add oats to their feed. If no eggs for me tomorrow after 2+weeks I will give it a shot.
