    This is our first experience with chicks. They will be 1 in March. They were laying eggs for about two months then stopped. They lost lots of feathers and have grown them back but are still not laying eggs. How long does a molt last? They are healthy happy girls.

    between molting, the cold, less light,, it could be 2 months or more,, but 1 month i THINK is the usual for molting.
