Pale comb no eggs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all
I had a fox attack 3 weeks ago and understandably my layer has stopped laying but I noticed her comb is not as red and looks a bit dry. She is going to the nest every day and singing the egg song but nothing is coming out. In every other way she seems ok though. Ie eating, dust bathing, scratching etc. she is about 6 months old. Any ideas what's going on with her? She has a few feathers sticking out is she moulting?
Thanks x

It's the time of year to molt. When they molt, they don't lay eggs. When they don't lay eggs, their comb is pale and shriveled.

Oh that's a relief. She still has all her feathers but at least there's nothing wrong with her

Thank you for your advice
