one hen stopping laying after predator took another hen


10 Years

I had three RIRs, all of them about 6 month old. No. 1 and 2 started laying a few weeks ago. about one week ago, one predator somehow got the no. 3 hen out of coop and killed it outside coop (since there was no feather found inside). Now, No. 1 hen still lay egg one a day, but no. 2 has completely stopping laying since that day. Anyone help me explain this? how can I get no. 2 hen starts laying again?


My wife thinks the no. 3 was the one that laying egg, not no. 2. I thought it is no. 2 hen because her comb and wattle are redder and bigger. I have seen no. 1 hen laying eggs but never see 2 and 3 do that so I could be wrong.....

Thank you!
