I have 6 hens in my sunny SoCal backyard. All have been reasonable to good layers in the past. At the end of August, they started their molting and the eggs tapered off and then stopped. But...the feathers all grew back, and yet NO EGGS. The chickens eat a non-GMO layer mix (free feed, as desired) along with kitchen scraps. They have at least 700 square feet to range in, and generally seem quite happy, dust bathing, scratching for bugs, etc. Of course it is winter now and I understand that there is a slow-down or cease in laying right now, but it seems really strange not to get a single egg for four months in a row. Has anyone else has this experience, and is there anything I can do? I miss my eggs!
