    Welcome to BYC.

    Hope you come back to check this thread and read, it's the easiest way to get responses.

    There can be many reasons why chickens will stop laying.

    Parasites like mites and lice
    molting
    illness

    It may also help to take pictures of your chicken and post them.

    Good luck.

    Agree with Mahonri... It's easier to reply here. Could be lost of things..

    Cold

    Stress

    ..and for some unknown reason, they can just stop.

    Good luck
