I have an Americuna hen and she was laying 3 eggs every week. Then we got rid of our roosters do to city living, now she hasn't layed an egg in 4 weeks. Is there something wrong with her or is this normal?

Thanks
Cassie

Is she by herself now or do you have another hen or two to keep her company? Chickens are social animals. She is probably missing her mate. Also, you have changed the dynamics of the flock, and that is stressful. It will probably take her a while to get back into the swing of things.

She could be egg bound too, but I'd bet she is just molting. All my birds dropped all their feathers last week (right before the CMBF poultry show
