    This is probably obvious knowledge that everyone knows, but: Do chickens stop laying when they molt?
    Because both our EE's are molting, and are not laying any eggs. That's normal, right?

    [​IMG] Ask not why the chicken crossed the road, but why the road got in the way of the chicken. [​IMG]
     
  2. Yes, I belive that is perfectly normal.

    Normal! Some will merely slow down, many completely halt until their feathers come in. They put their food towards feather-building.

    Thank you! [​IMG] I was very confused on whether or not I should be worried.
