I'm new at this but if I understand correctly, while my birds are molting egg production will decrease. How long will the molting time last? Also, I have younger birds that should be just about the right age to start laying but they're not, could that be because of the molting? Also, I had two girls that wanted to brod but I think I convinced them to get off their butts, but I'm not sure if they are back to laying. I was getting 4-5 eggs daily now I'm down to 2 a day. Is this normal or am I missing something?
