I know right, double whammy, Perhaps they are mentally stressed, theyre acting like they have lived here all their lives, The guy had about 500 birds and said these were pretty much wild lol but since im off work right now and bored I been down there feeding ALOT and my family owns a bakery so i give them alot of left over bread, and stuff, and I already give them 20% food any way since I messed up buying the bag, I also have oyster shell mixed in lol, But 5 are def mid molt, but @ of them are still laying, I think due to their age perhaps theyh are switching days on and off, but im hoping some extra light will bring me up to atleast 10 a day out of 17 lol!!! I mean its not a big deal, but it kind of is, I don't sell them ...yet.... BUT I have in the past....
