hen has stopped laying

Recommended Posts

After introducing my two new chickens last Sunday (who constantly hide in the eglu) one of my originals (gingernut) has decided to stop laying. She normally lays 1 a day and has only missed 1 day since she started laying a month ago. She now hasn't layed for three consecutive days. No diarorea and she seems to be eating well. Could the introduction of the new chickens have something to do with this?

Yes it very well could be! How old is your chicken? It may just be a coincidence. Wait for a few days and see if she starts laying again. Sometimes change/shock can affect laying. Watch them carefully for bullying too, as this could also result in less egg production.
