We have 5 RIR hens that we got about 1 yr. ago. They were adults when we got them and had just started laying eggs and were good egg layers from the day we got them. Then they molted in the winter for about 4-5 weeks (Dec.) and no eggs, then they started laying again no problem. Here we are Aug. 18 and they haven't laid an egg in a little over two months! Is this normal? They have a nice coop, fresh water and get plenty of layer food daily. We have noticed lots of feathers all over the yard and in their coop during this time but is it normal not to lay eggs for this long? Are they going to start again? I hate to get rid of them but we got them for the eggs not for pets.
