I recently moved into a house with six egg laying chickens and in the last few weeks they have stopped laying eggs. Is it because I am now feeding them loose feed instead of pellets like they were used to?? Thanks!!!

Is it layer feed? This time of the year chickens can molt, which slows egg laying. In addition with the days getting shorter many hens stop production for a while until the daylight starts increasing again.
