    I have three hens that are laying, I usually get two or three eggs a day. For the past five days they have not been laying, whats going on? The coop is clean, there is plenty of food and water, I dont know whats wrong. If anyone knows what is causing this please let me know what.

    Thanks,
    Chicken Dave

    Are they molting? Is it hot where you are? Heat can affect their laying habits, and when they molt they totally stop laying.
