I have two EE's, and they are less than a year old. Neither are molting noticeably, but I'm sure they are a bit. However, I thought that first-year layers don't slow down too much. I had been getting usually 3 eggs every 2 days from them, but now I only get an egg a day(not always), and always from the same hen. I've checked for hidden nests and haven't found any. Is it just the autumn weather causing this? She seems fine in all aspects, other than that she made a tiny little drip poop today.
