    My flocks consists of golden comets, EEs, SLW, speckled sussex and some brahmas. The Brahmas are 4 weeks younger than the others and from what I hear, quite slow to mature. How does this molting thing work? Can I hope that they'll all molt at different times since they'll all begin laying at different times?

    My golden comets have been laying. They're 20+ weeks. Next I assume some of the others will start to lay and the Brahmas may be a while.

    What are your thoughts on the whole molting phenomena?
