I have a Buff Orp that quit laying. Ok everyone has hens that have quit laying, I know, but she should be laying. She molted pretty heavily in September then resumed laying really well. Then, almost 2 weeks ago, she just stopped. Just.. nothing for more than 10 days. I'm stumped. Everyone else is doing as expected. One of the others stopped too but she's molting. The others didn't lay well during the extreme summer heat nor did she but now they are laying like clockwork. All but Big Girl, the head honcho. My Jumbo egg laying sweetheart. ARGH! They are all getting 18% grower since I have broilers and refuse to buy multiple types of food. They have free choice oyster shell and get Kefir (its a sort of buttermilk type stuff for those that haven't heard of it) and kefir whey regularly to help supplement their calcium. There had not been any changes in feed when she stopped. They have a rooster but he's young and the older women haven't accepted him as the Man yet. But Big Girl never did take on rooster mannerisms other than being the first with warning alarms. So it's not that. I did notice what looked like a fowl pox mark on one wattle yesterday. Could that be it? I looked up fowl pox but didn't see reference to it making them quit laying. Just to be clear, she's the same breed as the others that are still laying like clockwork. It's not day length. Even the dark cornish is laying almost every day though. One last thought: She does lay a shell less egg from time to time. None of the others do that. And I know absolutely for sure who is doing what because I trap nest. I have looked diligently everywhere quite often just in case she may be laying somewhere else, even keeping tabs on them throughout the day pretty closely, and I'm convinced she is *not* laying somewhere hidden.
