    I have three chickens that are a year old. They layed reliably up until they started moulting around 3 weeks ago. But now I haven't gotten an egg in 3 weeks! How long does the moulting/no egg laying last? Thanks.

    I'm wondering too.
    All I can say is to re-adjust your tastebuds to store bought eggs. Yuck!!

    it all depends on the bird. each breed is a little different. also the protien content in your feed does play a large part in it as well. They will be back, but who knows when.
