It's been four months now without a single egg from any of my four hens. What the heck?? I wasn't initially concerned because they stopped laying when they started molting. However, their feathers have been grown in for two to three months now, and still not a single egg. I was consistently getting two to three eggs every day until they started molting. I've only had them for eight months, but was told that they are in their first season of laying. I'm starting to wonder if maybe I was sold old hens, although wouldn't their egg production slow down gradually rather than being productive and then suddenly stop (and all four stop at the same time??) They don't act sick. They eat and drink the same feed they have always been on and have been eating and drinking just fine, they have plenty of calcium in their diet, they have enough space and should be happy. It's not possible that something is getting in and eating the eggs. Is it normal to go four months after a molt or during the winter? I'm in North GA to give you an idea of the weather. I'm just frustrated because the entire reason I have the hens is for the eggs, I don't have room to add any more hens, and I don't want to keep them if they don't start laying. I also don't have the money to spend on expensive vet bills to figure out what is going on. Any ideas as to what is going on? Or can four months without laying be normal in the winter? I also worry about what I'm going to do with them if they don't start laying. I can't bring myself to eat them, but how am I going to be able to give away hens that don't lay eggs?
