I am new to chickens. We have 20 silver laced wyandottes who were egg laying machines all spring and summer. However, they lost a few feathers in september, which I presumed was a molt. However, I have not seen an egg since august. They all appear healthy and act "normal." I am new at this and from all I read it seems that it is too long for a molt. I am in OHio and we have cold winters but local people have told me they are still getting eggs. Any advice and wisdom is appreciated.
