Hi all, I just wanted to share my happiness with you. I have a 20 mo old leghorn hen. She has had a horrible time this fall. She moulted and lost her place in the pecking order. She of course stopped laying. She still seems to be out of the pecking order, she has a hard time getting food, but today she layed a beautiful white egg. First one in months. Now if my white Easter Egger would just start laying again, I would be even more happy. Both of these birds seem to be on edge. The EE was always friendly and my son carried her around in his hood. She would sit on his lap while he did his homework but now no one can catch her, not even my son. She used to eat out of our hands, but no more. Has anyone else seen this behavior when moulting?
