Why Don't My White Legged Horns lay eggs?

    My White Legged Horns have completely stopped laying eggs for the past two weeks. It was gradual and then finally none. They are free range during the day and cooped up at night. The RIR and Black Australorp lay nearly every day and they return to their coop to lay in the boxes (except for one who lays in the barn sink). I have looked for a secret laying place but can't find one. Any suggestions?

    My white leghorns recently did the same thing. Was there a sudden temp change in your area? Cause it got real hot here in Pennsylvania and they decided to quit laying for a little while. Just give em time. Is there maybe anything in the coop stressing them out?
