    My 11 month old Maran has lost weight and her crown is no longer reddish its a bit grey, shes being a great Mom to her 3 babies. How can I build up her strength, when will she start laying again. She was broody for 5 weeks total. She's eating egg layers and growers crumbles and Ive been giving them scrambled eggs and some yogurt.

    It sound like she's hetting well fed. I would only suggest that you check for mites, lice and worms.
