    I understand that 'late moulters' tend to resume laying more quickly after a moult. I am wondering which breeds are typically late moulters. I have two RIR's, 6 Black Australorps, and 6 Americaunas. I have read that reduced daylight and weather change, is often a trigger. Any information would be appreciated.

    I'm just learning about moulting. My hens were a year the first of Sept. and three of them are in a full moult. Boy do they look like they've been through the mill!! It amazes me that it's getting cold and they're losing their coats. I hope they start laying again soon.
