    No eggs today at all. Hope this is not the beginning of a trend. Time to add a light to the coop. We also have to get rid of 2 beautiful roosters.. Neither of us wants to do it.

    Lots of things can cause them to stop laying from health issues (worms, bacterial or viral infections), improper diet, stress, quick changes in temperature, mites, molting, the shortening of the days. Give your birds a good once over to make sure they are healthy enough to be laying, get them wormed and then try adding light to the coop. But make sure they always have at least 8 hours of complete darkness.
