    My girls just turn two. I haven't gotten nothing now for over a week. They all seem healthy and do what ever it is chickens do all day. This is also the coldest it's been this winter. I am figuring in another week or so things be back to normal? I know I be getting less eggs than a young hen but like to know if they are gonna give me at least a few a week for at least another year.

    They recently came out of a molt not too long ago. I have noticed though lately there are lots of little feathers. They can molt again so soon? It was like two months ago, their last molt.
