Seven hens total: the two Easter Eggers have stopped laying for sure about 3 weeks ago and began their molt, the other 5 (RIR and Black Sex-link) are still laying WELL (4-5 eggs a day) but I've found some of their feathers so I think they're going to start molting soon too. I didn't think non-commercially raised birds went off their feed while molting -- could this have something to do with it? I didn't know to check their crops before, so I'm not sure what a normal crop feels like. I checked four of them this morning and all felt the same, warm (but only slightly warmer than the rest of the chicken), a little squishy, empty, but gritty. Poop seems normal; a couple of them have greenish poop but there is some algae in the puddles around here and this seems to happen occasionally. I switched their feed from milled grain to layer pellets last week, but I don't think this is the issue, because they're not even interested in their scratch grains that were previously like crack to them. A further confounding variable: we filled up the birdfeeders this week and I know they've been eating the sunflower seeds that are in there. They don't seem to be touching their oyster shell or grit either. They range all day in about 2 acres of forest/meadow. We're in Central Texas, so the coldest it's gotten is mid-50s so far. Help! There are so many variables I have no idea what could be causing this. They haven't been eating for 3 or 4 days now AND I don't know how we're going to bribe them to go in the coop for the night since they're not into their scratch anymore. ETA: Oh! Most importantly? They are acting like NOTHING'S WRONG. Totally normal. I will check their crops tonight when they should be full of bugs and stuff, but from their behavior they are still acting the same as always.
