    It's been 2 1/2 weeks and still no eggs from her. She was a every other day type of girl. I know the days are shorter sun up at 7:45ish and down at 6:45ish. Am I looking at no eggs all winter from her or will her body balance out and she start laying again?

    Is she molting? Mine are, and out of 15 hens I get MAYBE one egg every other day.

    Doesn't appear to be. I have one "scruffy" looking hen who moulting and I'm still getting an egg a week from her.
