    My 2 hens and 2 pullets haven't laid an egg in atleast 3 weeks. Our weather has been odd, but warm enough and light enough that they should be laying.

    My bantam EE who has been a reliable egg layer even through the winter took a 7+ day break that ended a week ago. She suddenly started laying again last Monday and has laid an egg every day since. Not sure what triggered the break but she is back laying now! The one thing I did notice is that she really was interested in the calcium supplements i give my hens during the non-laying period. My guess is she was "reloading" on calcium but who knows?
