    I've got three 8 month old hens. My BR and RIR have been laying like clockwork since late December, but my Easter Egger held out. She finally started laying in late Feb, but after 2 weeks of laying, she has stopped. Nothing since then. She's seems perfectly healthy and energetic and happy. No evidence of mites or worms, tail is up, and she squats for me. It's been 7 weeks with no eggs. Is she done? When will I know for sure? Any advice would be a great help. Thanks.

    Fickle EEs. Sometimes they take breaks. Mine took a six week break in January.
