    My two hens made it through their molt and one has started laying again. Our little RIR is back to laying and hopefully her partner in crime, our Black Australorp, will start up again soon. They've had to make some adjustments with our recent move and a new coop, but I think they're finally settled in. Their new feathers are bright and fluffy and they look happy to be in their new surroundings. Here they are having a treat this morning.

    Beautiful birds! They look happy! [​IMG] Mine are just about finished getting all their new feathers in.
    Can't wait until they do!

    That's not a RIR, but that's great [​IMG]

    I can't wait for my hen Denny to stop being such a crank pot. She is picking on everyone. I guess she thinks they should be losing feathers as well [​IMG]

    Yay! I love it when they start laying again after molt.

    I think my first hen is about a week from laying again.

    Not a RIR? What is she?

    Thank you for the clarification. I had no idea. She's always been a great little egg layer.
