    so i was given these hens and they had good production for a few days then be cause of the move they commenced molting. after three months i started getting concerned so i did a random vent check and i found the size of their vents had shrunk. i was told they were only two years old. does this mean they stopped laying?

    What kind of hens are they? If they are production birds, that's entirely possible. I hope you didn't pay anything for them.
