    Ok, so one of my hens has stopped laying. Her comb/wattle are a healthy red, been dewormer, no lice or mites, eating drinking pooping normally. The days have become shorter for sure, but do hens just stop laying with decreased light?? Mt other hens are still laying. Do you guys think it's a health thing or just because the days are becoming shorter?

    They are 9 months old. She probably hasn't lasted in a week. Do they lay during the winter at all?
