We got day old chicks (7 red star and 1 white leghorn) last April and they started laying in the Fall and they were doing great! We were getting an average of 10 eggs a day then it started getting cold and they slacked up to maybe one or two a day. We live in West Tennessee so it hasn't been really cold this winter. We've had a couple of dusting snows but it's been mostly warm. Anyway they molted and basically stopped laying and now they have all their feathers back but we still are only getting 3 eggs a day. I noticed today that three of our hens have very healthy red large combs and waddles and I think I read somewhere that you can tell who is laying by that. The rest of them have kind of small and pale looking combs and waddles. Is that true? How can I get them to start laying again?
