    I have a hen that hasn't laid an egg in about 3 weeks. She is young, and laid them daily for a couple months, then just stopped. Anyone have any clues?

    Her food has not changed.
    Her routine and feeding time has not changed.
    Doesn't seem sick at all.

    My girls have stopped laying eggs because they are moulting. That might be the reason for your girl too.

    Is she constantly on the nest? That would indicate broodiness! If so you can put her in a wire cage food and water but no nesting materials so she will stop being broody!
