My 6 hens were laying egg just great and about a month ago they just stopped. Feathers all over the place. They all seem happy and healthy, but no eggs. Will they start laying again?
Help ! !

It sounds like they are molting. My birds typically do this two times a year...once in the fall and once in the spring. They should start laying soon, but give it a few weeks. Also, this wacky weather sometimes throws them off as well. Mine haven't laid since this winter!

Have 17 laying hens. Somedays will get 5-6 eggs, the next day get 10-15 eggs. Have noticed they lay more if we have 2-3 warm sunny days. They have laid thru out most of the winter.
