Why do Chickens stop laying eggs ,My last chickens never did this .. I'm confused .
Usually because they are molting or old or it is too cold outside. Those are the most common and normal reasons. Illness can also have some affect depending on what is wrong.
I don't think their old their only 1 and it's hot outside so either their sick or molting they don't act sick at all, all my younger chickens aren't picking on them ...
in fact I thought my whole flock would be laying by now but I guess not .
Heat can also cause chickens to slow down or stop laying. Egg laying actually increases body heat so many slow down/stop if it's very hot simply to keep themselves more comfortable. If they are not molting and the heat has been bad, my guess is that's what's going on.
