Do they show any signs of getting ready to lay?Are their combs starting to flop over?or becoming bigger?Do they go in nest boxes if you have any? Some can take up to 10 months to lay.

WOW, none of my girls have laid since their molt in August as well! I was begining to wonder. I don't ever remember a molt taking so long.

It's been really hot till just this month, so I guess they got a double wamy of molt and heat.

My bantys who have hatched out 2 clutches each are not even letting the roo close to them and thier babys are 4 - 5 months old. I've seperated them from the babies, but one of them continues to hang around the pullet coop.
