This is our first year going through the molting process. One of my hens was clearly molting based on how they looked and the amount of feathers they lost. She stopped laying for a while, but now is back in force! However, one of my regular layers stopped laying and it does not appear that she's molting. All looks normal with her, no evidence of worms anywhere and hardly any feathers lying about. No evidence of fighting or squabbles with other hens. One new one added months ago, but she stopped laying well after that.
She was a regular white egg layer before. She's only about 1 year old. Along with molting in the fall and winter time do they also just stop laying during this time anyway?
I checked today and I saw a very small white egg in the batch that I think might be hers since they all lay different colors.
