Add to Favorites Reading Time: 8 minutes Hen Stops Laying  Hi,  I have a two-and-one-half-year-old Barred Rock who used to be one of my best producers. She suddenly stopped laying a few months ago. Other than that, she seems fine. No sign of illness or injury. She is eating and drinking and bossing the other hens around. I feed a layer crumble that has 17% protein and offer oyster shell free-choice. They receive a small, healthy snack at the end of the day. The last month, she has laid at least three broken eggs; not an egg that broke, but an egg with a very thin shell that I believe broke inside of her before it came out. She doesn’t seem to have the signs of being egg-bound. She laid one normal egg last week and one a couple of months ago. My other hens are laying well. What do you
