    Well, the ladies have got their BEAUTIFUL leopard patterned feathers and are not laying.
    They have been free ranging, but have always gone into the barn to lay. Any tips? They are 1 1/2 years old and this was their first molt.

    How long has it been since the molt? They stop laying so they can spend the energy on making the feathers so it may take a couple of weeks to start laying again.

    They will though - be patient.
