I have 5 hens and one rooster. They were good layers all winter until a few weeks ago when we dropped down to maybe one a day. Now we are not getting any eggs for the past week. Due to re-seeding my lawn I kept them in their coop for 3 days this week and confirmed no eggs (I usually free range so I thought perhaps they were laying where I couldn't see the eggs). Two of the hens are molting although not drastically. One of the 5 hens is older than the others and she molted last fall (and looked awful). So here is my question... is it possible the others are not molting but not laying eggs out of sympathy or some kind of biological coordination going on? I see no reason the older hen who molted months ago would not lay (but for the possibility she is just getting too old... she is around 3.5 years old). Should I be worried? Should I change diet? Thanks for any advice!
