    When on Earth will my girls start laying again? The last egg had to be on Thanksgiving or a few days after.

    You could have a while to wait.....some of mine are just starting up after quitting in Sept or October. It will help that the days will be getting longer rather than shorter.

    I noticed that their combs are pinking up again. Do they normally go pale-ish when they moult? They went from vivid red to light-medium pink.

    Yep...they get pale and dry looking when they're not laying. Once they get red and plump again you should start getting eggs again.
