My two hens are nine months old, they are bard Plymouth rocks and they were laying nicely- one egg each a day. I stopped letting them have the run of the back yard about two weeks ago and made them a nice sized run behind some camellia bushes. Just before I moved them they were laying less, about one egg each every other day. For the last week they are eating very little food- the same food they had before and no eggs since last saturday... today is Thursday. They look fine except they are starting to loose feathers... They seem too young to molt, but maybe the molting is because they are not eating? The last two days it occurred to me to throw the uneaten food into the run and they are now eating it!! I don't think they are sick, but have no idea what is going on.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
