    She might just be getting old, or might be molting. :)
    Are your other hens still laying regularly?

    Laxbro, from the time frame you mentioned and the weather conditions, I'd say she's simply molting.

    Should be about three weeks and she'll be back to normal.
    Feed her laying pallets and only give her treats etc in the afternoon.
    She should be back to normal in no time.

    Good Luck!
