    How old are the hens? How long have you had them? Sometimes a disturbance, like moving, can cause them not to lay. It could also be heat or other environmental stressor.

    Of course, they may be laying somewhere else, too - look around for hidden eggs!

    Where are you located? If you're in the north, they could be starting their fall molt. Are you seeing feathers all over the place?
