We have a very small flock (4 right now but one is looking like a rooster so very well may be 3 soon!) If our 4th girl is indeed a cockerel, we will probably add 2 new chicks at some point in the next year. I am wondering if there is any ideal time to help ensure the most steady egg production. Is it likely that our current girls will molt together being that they are the same age? Or is it more seasonally motivated and they will all molt together regardless of age? Since we have such small numbers, even if 2 hens molt simultaneously, we would have a substantial drop in eggs.
