Our chickens (1x Amercauna, 1x Rhode Island Red, 1x Wyandotte) haven't layed an egg in two weeks. At first I thought it was the frost and they were just too cold to lay, but since the last two weeks have basically gone through all seasons except summer, I'm stumped. I got one tiny egg last weekend, that was broken by the time I got to it, but other than that - nothing.
They'll be 2 in April and the Ameracauna has been a laying champ, but is also the only one who has ever been through a proper molting (this past fall). They seems to be eating and pecking around just fine. We have a light in their coop on a timer to keep them a bit warmer and also extend "daylight" for them in the darker months.
It's weird. I'm concerned. Any of you have any thoughts?
