i have a beautiful BR hen about 2 years old. she lives with only one laying Americana (sp?).  She stopped laying last fall and I still haven't seen one egg from her!!  We have other chickens, but they are younger and the two I mentioned above pick on them, so i have had them seperated since day one.  any suggestions on what I can do to get her back to laying??

Um, some times they will stop when they molt, but since it's been so long, how old is she? Other wise, she may not be getting enough light, hens normally need about 14 hours of light to lay every day. Um, IDK. I might be wrong, i might not be. shrug

She is really sweet- talks to you every time you walk into the coop.
amydixonjones, she is 3 yrs old and I think that she is all egged out.
Haven't seen an egg from her in the longest time.
