    My white leghorn, Camilla, Hasn't layed an egg is slightly over a week. There really haven't been any changes in her enviroment, other than the weather, which went from being 75-85 in the day to being 60-75. She has always been my most productive layer, usually laying an egg every day. Her behavior is the same. She has lost several feathers lately, but she is acting completely fine! Could it just be the weather upsetting her, or is there something wrong with her?

    Most likely the weather. My hens have dropped drastically as well. Usually happens every fall and then sort of picks back up again but not as much as during the spring and summer (unless it gets really hot where you live).

    If there is feather lost as well, she could be molting. That will stop egg laying for a few weeks. My hens tend to do molt in the fall more than any other time of the year.
