    Poof Face will be 7 years old this year. I just got an egg from her today!! I was wondering if she was going to start laying again this year. She always stops laying in about Oct or Sept, when she does her molt and then starts again just before spring. She lays green eggs.

    good grief, that's quite a molt! Mine are in a rough molt right now. She looks alot like my EE Biscuit. You must be doing very well with her, seven years old is wonderful!
