    I have a Golden Laced Wyandotte, Marbles, and she hasn't layed an egg since the end of July. She is a little over a year old and she looks healthy, her poop looks good, and she does normal chicken stuff. We took her poop to the vet and she had no parasites or anything bad. Should I worry or is she just taking a break?

    Could be molting. Another problem could be the heat, if you are experiencing high temps. like the rest of us. The third thing that comes to mind is that she's hiding her eggs on you. If you free range, it might be time for an easter egg hunt.

    If she's not in moult, and the temperatures not very hot (like here), and there are no other stressors....most likely she's taking a break. Oops, gritsar beat me to it lol.
