    I think 18mos is the age most chickens molt, and they don't lay eggs for a few weeks. A lot of other posters seem to have the same issue.Some due maybe to the heat in some areas. Hopefully someone with more experience can help and recognize the signs.
    You may want to include how they are overall, eating, drinking, pooping, appearance etc....
