I got my first nine hens this past spring, they all hatched one year ago in October. (3 RIR, 3 rocks, and 3 golden comets). I have noticed their egg laying slowing down slightly with the shorter days. I have not seen any signs of a molt yet. Do all hens always molt once a year or are all bread different? Temps are definitely getting colder and we will really be into winter before we know it. I am assuming given the fact they are over a year old they will all molt this year?
