There are several reasons why your chickens are not laying eggs again. Sometimes, they might have gone through stress, health challenges, nutritional problem, molting, lighting issues, etc. However, some of these problems are natural why some are not, but with good management practices this problem can be rectified and your chickens will start laying again. If you are a poultry farmer or just a backyard chicken keeper, you may have noticed a sudden drop in egg production in your flock and you get worried, however, this is not the time to panic because you might take a wrong decision along the process. There are some questions you have to answer before taking any action. Answering those questions will enable you to make an informed decision.

The period of molting varies depending on the chicken breed. For backyard chickens, it takes about 8 to 12 weeks and can cause a sharp drop in egg production.
