    I need help. My 1 1/2 yr old buffs are not laying at all and have not for months. Nothing changed except construction behind us for last few months. Would that do it? I mean maybe 2 eggs in 2 months. Lots of feathers in coop as well and the girls have never molted. But, feathers and no eggs for 2 months?

    Moulting.

    Mix it up with some new feeds and treats and let them free range a little at night for a half an hour before the sun sets.
