    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Molting is quite hard on chickens physically and they need a lot of protein to regrow feathers, so they won't lay well, if at all during this time. Feeding them high protein food and snacks like cooked eggs, mealworms, a little dry cat food now and then, will help them a lot.
