    My 3 BO'all stopped laying eggs about 1 week ago. One had gone broody & was put in the Broody Box. The other 2 stopped laying at the same tiime. They have all been back to normal after Edith 's 2 day stay in the Broody Box, but no one is laying. They are eating and drinking well, having a few veggie and fruit type snacks along with some grass and clover, but still no eggs. I've checked their bottoms and all is good in that area. Any ideas? They still want to be petted and held & they sit on my lap. No one seems sick... :)

    Pullets who have just started laying usually take breaks a few times before they start into a routine. Keep up on the feed and calcium and you'll get eggs again soon.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the reply. I figured they were ok, but ya never know. Two heads are better then one sometimes! My girls are 16 months old. Are they still pullets? I don't know at what age they are considered hens? Never really thought about that! :)

    Your girls are now hens:) Once they reach a year they are considered hens.
