    I had a chicken pass away 2 weeks ago, she was older and had a stroke, and passed away a few weeks after the stroke.

    My other 4 hens have not layed a single egg since she passed away though.

    None of them look like they are molting. What's up? Anyone have any idea why the others are not laying? They look healthy and are eating and drinking and going outside...but no eggs

    I am not sure. Maybe just feeling under the weather a bit. Give them some vitamins or some kind of treat. See if that perks them up....

    thanks for the reply I did try giving them some more fresh product and table scrapes they seem perky and fine, my partner thinks they are depressed but they don't look depressed to me.
