The title almost says it all. My three hens are 2.5 years old (hatched spring '09), and the SLW and Faverolle slowed a lot around August, but the EE kept laying decently well until mid-September, when all three hens started visibly losing feathers. Since mid-September, I have gotten exactly 0 eggs. Their feathers have filled in again and they mostly look back to normal now, so I think they are about done with their molt--but still, no eggs. I've read a lot of threads on here, but haven't seen anyone say what a normal/average amount of time is to go without laying any eggs. I'm in withdrawal, and I just want to know when I can expect eggs again! They had their first molt last fall, and I can't remember when they started, but I think it was well after Thanksgiving before I saw any eggs again. I was hoping that maybe their second molt wouldn't last so long. Any ideas? I have never added light for them, except I do have a red heat lamp in their coop that I turn on whenever daytime temps get around freezing, and then I leave it on 24 hours--I read here that red lamps don't have the same effect on laying rate as white, which is fine with me--I don't want them to be machines, I just want them to be comfortable, but I'd love it if they could toss me an egg once in awhile over the fall/winter. I also didn't change their diet last year (although I do give BOSS for treats), but maybe adding more protein now would help? Could I just add some chick starter to their regular food? Thanks!
