When will they lay eggs again after Molting?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Some of my hens have stopped laying because they are molting (from what I understand this is normal) but the ones who have their feathers back now are not laying yet & it has been over 2 1/2 months since they molted & still no eggs.  roll

Will they ever lay again, do you think?!  I am hoping so... smile   Maybe in the spring?

My year and a half old EE stopped laying in the middle of July and began her molt.  She laid her first agg since then, today... So.. there is hope!

2 of my EE's started Molting in August and one of them finally laid an egg again yesterday. So it was 3 months for her and still nothing from my other one.
