We haven't gotten eggs in a month and a half perhaps 2. They were molting something fierce but they have stopped I think. It looks like about all their feathers are back in. they are not laying any eggs still and my DH wants to get rid of them bc they're not giving eggs that will NOT happen. but now its winter and cold and the days are short and I am wondering if they're not going to want to lay any at all. would putting in fake eggs help?? is there something else I can do for them to encourage them to lay eggs?
