Survived my first month with the chickens! Still feeling like a total Noob though We were doing so well on eggs the first week we had them, now out of the 8 we are only getting 1 egg every three or four days. Four of them are young, though, and just around the age they should be starting to lay. I can't tell how many are actually laying. When they start laying, how long is it before they are laying regularly? Two of the older hens are definitely moulting. One of them is almost totally bald and another is down to only one tail feather. She looks pretty stupid They stopped laying about 3 weeks ago. How long before they start back up? It sure is frustrating getting them the week before they start moulting! I feel like it is an awful lot of work for 1 egg a week! We also added birds and threw in a coop move, so I rationally know that might have hindered the egg laying business further. Still super frustrating!
