    How old are they? Are you certain they are not hiding their eggs somewhere? When mine suddenly stop laying i start searching the yard for a clutch of eggs. They can be sneaky.

    Did you just recently acquire them? Could it be that your rooster is stressing them too much with his 'attentions'?

    It's very normal for hens to stop laying when there are big changes to their living environment. A new home, and new flock members are two big stressors. It can take several weeks for them to adjust and start laying again.
