I have a pullet who is about 9 months old, and she has been laying faithfully in her nest box nearly every day for the past 3 months. This week, she has not laid 4 out of the last 5 days. She doesn't appear to be molting, and is acting otherwise quite normal. What's going on? Is this normal? Is it possible that she suddenly started laying in a sneaky place somewhere else? Or is it normal for them to just take a hiatus for no apparant reason?

yes and yes LOL It is normal. some of my girls go into moult slowly...it isnt until 1-2 weeks later I start to notice feathers missing and such from moulting-and she could have found a nice secret laying spot-does she look healthy-no mites-lice etc? it is still very cold out and this plays a factor with the short days-all though they are getting a tad longer now but it still happens.
