Leghorn stopped laying after a month.

    The title says it all. I'm wondering if this is normal, if it's happening because the weather is changing, or if it happened because I changed their food. I have 4 hens altogether. The others haven't started laying yet.

    We were getting one egg a day from the leghorn, but we haven't gotten one for at least a week now. Is this normal?

    Welcome to BYC!

    I assume that the birds are all about 6 months old?
    Some more info would be helpful.

    What was the feed change that you made?
    Are they eating the new food?

    Do you free range?
