I have a RIR hen. I got her as an adult so I don't know how old she is. I've had her since Oct. '07. When I brought her home, she was layed an egg the next morning and continued that way for a couple of months. Now she hasn't layed in months and months. She does go into the nest box frequently whether there is someone else's egg in there or not. When I reach in to touch her she hunkers down like she's scared. She doesn't "growl" or peck at me at all. She'll even sometimes just come out of the box. Other then that, she's fine. Is she just "broken"?? Is maybe her laying time just over?
