    After a long molt, we finally got an egg. Each girl this year molted on its own taking two weeks each!
    Had the light going the whole time in an effort to try and make them lay.

    How long is your light on each day?
    Most my yearlings molted despite lighting for 14 hours a day.
    Some are back to laying, some are not.
