    My Barred Rocks are healthy. They are now 2 years old. Well, healthy... except for one, who no longer lays any eggs due to her episode of "Eggboundedness" in August.

    Do they ever lay again? I was not able to get the egg out. Her tush looks normal now. But over the past couple of days I have noticed her comb and wattles look really pale and almost dehydrated looking... here is a photo to compare the color and such with my other hen.

    They are an abundance of feathers in the run the past few days, maybe she is molting?
