    Recently treated an upper respiratory infection on a hen (Americana) and she hasn't laid since. It's been about 5 months. She has also decided not to leave the coop. If she does come outside, she acts like she is scared. Ideas?

    Welcome to BYC!

    Does she come out to eat and drink?
    What type of respiratory illness did she have - symptoms?
    Have you observed the flock's interactions with her - any signs of bullying/pecking order?

    There are many things that can affect laying. If she is acting scared, then stress or bullying may be the cause. Respiratory illnesses and reproductive disorders can impact egg production as well.
