I don't know what to do. About 12 weeks ago, my chickens started molting which was fine because I expected it. I know that a molt is supposed to last about 6-8 weeks long. About 2 weeks ago I started getting 2 eggs a day (out of 12) and then 1 week ago it stopped. We have hardly gotten any snow. There is only about 10 1/2 hours of sunlight a day. Most of their combs are red. Could it be the sunlight or the lack of snow or something else? Feed isn't cheap and it feels like I'm throwing my money away. What do I do?
