I have a hen that is going on 20 months old. She has always done things her way, lol... Anyway, she is molting. But interestingly enough, she is still laying eggs. She doesn't have lice or mites, it is definitely a molt. Only bare spots, that aren't really bare are on her neck and there are a ton of blood feathers coming in so, I know it is a molt. My question is, although they USUALLY stop laying during a molt, is it THAT uncommon for a hen to continue laying?
