I'm looking for some chicken wisdom- this is my first time raising chickens and my flock is a little over a year old. At the end of the winter/very early spring, I noticed the hens beginning to molt. I didn't notice a huge drop in egg production, but it was winter, so it had been spotty anyway. It's been a couple of months and their feathers seem to be coming in VERY slowly, if at all. Is this normal for molting or should I look at other possible issues? On top of that, I recently discovered some of my hens were laying in the eaves of their coop (a barn stall) I removed them and blocked access to it, but I'm not getting any more eggs! There's not many places they could be hiding them- they don't free range (we have kids and a dog- too much chaos). I have a broody hen that I need to break, but I'm still getting eggs from my other chickens, so it's not like she's scaring everyone out of the nesting boxes. I'm sorry for the long post- I just have a feeling that something isn't right but I don't know where to start solving the mysteries. Any insights would be much appreciated!
