    I have a blrw hen that has stopped laying. I think it's because she was in a coop that didn't get enough light. Should she resume She Is only about 9mths old.

    Lack of sunlight will slow them down, I have one gal that does not lay all winter. As soon as the longer spring days are back, she'll start again. A healthy 9 month old will lay again when the days are longer.
