    Egg mystery

4 chickens. 

Each 1.5 years old.

7 days.

1 coop with 2 laying boxes.

NO eggs.

My girls have been slowing down their egg production with the shortening days and the onset of winter (though "winter" here in Northen California isn't anywhere as severe as more northen states). A few have molted recently or are currently molting.

But I haven't seen a single egg since a week ago.

They're well-fed and they pastured every day, as they've been doing for the past 5 months. Nothing in their routine has changed that I can see.

Anyone seeing a similar strike with their flock?
