    My sex link hen is about 1 and a half. She stopped laying eggs almost 2 months ago. At first we thought it was bc of molting bc she was losing feathers and this had happened once before. But now it's over a month and her comb is fading from a bright red to pink. Any ideas what's going on??? I've been feeding her pellets for good protein. She is drinking water.
    She also won't fly over our fence anymore, she used to do this every day and now stays put in our backyard. Thanks

    Sex links don't often live long due to their high production and the wear it puts on their bodies. I would suspect she has something going on. They are often prone to reproductive cancers. Your best option is to find a vet to look at her.
