    My bantam girls have quit laying. Not an egg in weeks. No chance of them hiding them, no signs of moulting- just not producing.
    I tried a search to see if they lay seasonally with no luck.
    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Same here...I have a Sebright and a D'Uccle and either one of them has laid all summer. They went through a molt and then didn't begin laying after that. They did eat the Japanese beetles in the garden, so they still paid their rent!!!!! Not sure how to get them started producing again, but I'm hoping nature will just kick in on its own. I hate to try to "force" anything. They seem healthy otherwise.
