Okay, I think all of my birds have just molted or are molting. Egg production has stopped altogether. The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder. I read that hens are never as productive again as they were in their first year! This book recommended getting a whole new batch of hens every year! I'm not getting rid of my girls, but when will they start laying again? I've been giving them layer feed all this time, and they are free range. I just cleaned out the hen house and the nest boxes, everything is so nice, and they're not using it! When will they get back to work!?
