Folks, I really need your help regarding two of my hens, a Barred Rock and a Rhode Island Red. Both birds stopped laying at the same time this summer and seven weeks have passed since their last egg. They are both slightly under one year of age. Are they more than likely molting? I have two Golden Comets, both of them older, and they lay on a very consistent basis. Could it be the heat? I have to admit a little frustration here. I should mention they are both in good health and as active as they've always been.
