My Blue Bell Hybrid Chicken has stopped laying

    My Hybrid Blue Bell Chicken has stopped laying, she has not laid eggs for around 3 months. She is not broody at all so I'm a bit confused. I picked he rip today and noticed she has a red patch on her belly. She has been treated for lice, red mites etc. she is just 2 years of age.
    We have been watching her recently and she sits on the nest comes out of the coop looks gorgeous her pal and then goes back and repeats until her pal gets on the nest and lays her daily egg. It's as if she's turned male because she starts the eggy song.

    If anyone can help I would be most grateful or if anyone has experienced these behaviours?
