Why are't my hens laying anymore

I have Rhode Island Red chickens that are 2 years old. I am getting only a couple of eggs a day, the past 2 days I haven't gotten any. Will they be any good if I butcher them? Is there something to make them start laying again or is it usual for them to stop laying ths early? By the way I have 8 hens and 1 rooster.

A chicken can lay one egg per day, but lays one hour later each day and only lays during day light. So, it works out that a hen gets one day off per month!
