    My chickens are about 18 months old and the first year of eggs was GREAT. They slowed down a LOT in July/Aug due to Texas heat and then all but one STOPPED. They were all molting, but how long does it take??? I've only gotten one egg a day (from the same hen, I can tell by color/size) for two months now.

    Depending on how bad there molts are it could last up to 3months. Also because it is fall and we have less light than we do in spring/summer there egg laying will be less.
