I have 5 hens and my oldest is a feather foot Barred Rock who was the sole survivor of a fox attack last winter. She started laying a year ago last July and has been laying regularly in the same nest box in the coop until about 3 weeks ago when she just quit laying abruptly. I pasture them every day so I thought she was nesting in the yard somewhere but I can't find anything. She appears healthy, has a good appetite and I can't find anything wrong with her. My question is does this breed quit laying this soon or am I just not finding another nest somewhere? The other 4, a Buff Orpington and 3 ISA Browns Just started laying in August and they use the nesting boxes in the coop religiously.
