    Oh.....is she walking funny? Kind of like a penguin? If so, she could be egg bound. It is awfully hot though, she could just be stressed from the heat.....I don't want to alarm you.

    They also stop laying if they molt. Is she losing feathers?

    they stopped molting about three weeks ago and all new feathers are in place she laid about every other day after molt it is just recently that she stopped completely. I have a water sprinlkler going which she enjoys to keep cool so not sure its the heat.
