Last year we had a Wellsummer that molted in sept. We figured she would not begin laying until the spring of this year (because of the winter). She never laid/layed another egg. This year we had a Gold laced wyandotte that went thru her molt in July/august. She looks great now and her comb has gone back to red BUT no eggs yet. I understand it can be up to 2 months after the molt that they won't lay, is that true? I am concerned that we will have a second bird who is not laying but still eating. We have 29 birds , 16 of which are 4.5 mos old. 2 of the Cinnamon queens have started laying little tiny eggs... I hope they get bigger !
