    As soon as quarantine is over, I will be adding 2 good layers I received in with my slackers, some of whom were molting and others that stopped for one reason or another (daylight maybe). Might the good layers inspire the others to lay again? Their feathers have grown back nicely!

    They could. I have a stubborn mystery breed chicken that has ONLY given me one fart egg. That's it.

    Thanks! I'll let ya know what happens. It should be interesting. BTW, I have and EE, Australorpe and BO that are laying age and have layed up until a month ago. Then I have 2 BR's and another Austrolorpe that are getting close. The two I am adding are some mixed breed, but lay well.
