    I have an EE, RIR, & an Orpington.. They all started to lay. My RIR lays regulary as well as my Orpington. But, the EE layed about every other day for about 2 weeks now has not layen for 5+ days. Does anyone have any ideas why?

    P.s. They are all pullets

    Hi, most of mine stopped laying as well, my guess is it`s because winters coming and they are molting. Also, did you recent move them to a different coop recently? That would do it also till they get used to the new surroundings.
