    Hi florida chicknz

    Have you made any changes to feed etc.? Are you sure that she doesn't have parasites? It could be that the shorter days are the reason that she hasn't been laying eggs lately. How long with no egg, and what breed is your hen? Probably she is slowing down due to the shorter length of days....and there is nothing to worry about. (except not getting the eggs that you are expecting).
