    back in aug. my 3 ladies went into molt, they all stopped laying for some time then
    2 of them started laying and recently the 3rd just started laying again.

    I can't do nothing about there laying cycle .....is a couple of months standard for molt and not laying.?
    this is the first molt I've been thru.

    I don't have much experience with molts, but a couple of months sounds right to me.

    Yes it's roughly standard but every hen is different and some moult more heavily than others so take longer to grow their feathers back and resume laying.
    My first two hens took two month to begin laying again after a moult.

    Hope that helps :)
