    I have 3 americans and a BLRW . The Americans are 7 1/2 months and the BLRD is 2 years old. Every body was laying for about 3 weeks then it went to only one of my americans laying. I know it is just one girl because she lays a green egg the other two laid blue. My BLRD I think is molting, I have seen quite a few feathers from her but she does look any different. ( about 3 weeks now no egg from her either.) Any help?

    How long before they started laying again?

    Maybe it could just be a short break from laying? [​IMG] My hens are 2 years old and stopped laying for a month or two, not molting, and then slowly started up again. Are they getting enough feed? What about the possibility of egg eaters?
