One of the indicators a bird doesn't feel well is to look at their eyes. If they're not round and bright looking, like the others, then something is going on.

Is she being bullied at all? That can cause laying issues and the desire to avoid the others.

Stand back and watch them for a while to see what the flock dynamic is.

Knowing you're just starting out helps in making suggestions because it can be so different for someone with years under their belts.

It's winter. Shorter days, colder weather, molting. They all affect egg laying. Sometimes you can tell molting is happening by the extra feathers laying around. Or quills beginning to appear.
