    For the past week my chickens haven't laid one single egg. I have two red star hens and they are about two years old now. The weather here has been cold about in the 20's-60's. Is it because of the weather? They aren't molting. They have access to plenty of food and water every day. We haven't moved them or anything they are both in and out of there coop every day, and they are perfectly healthy.

    I'm not sure but it seems like they're just cold.
