After reading other posts today I guess I am not alone. I have 4 hens that are nearly 3 yrs old ( Rhode Island reds, a Barred Rock and a leghorn). I also have 5 Buff Orpingtons and 4 Blk Australorps (nearly 2 yrs.). I was in a total shut down since at least early Nov.or even late Oct. I have 3 that have begun laying again but I am finding that one is eating the eggs. Fortunately she is housed with only 2 others. They are getting 18% pellets, plenty of water, and are free from parasites. I guess I just have to sit back and wait? They did all molt at various times too this fall. My barred rock molted first and she is one of the ones back laying. I guess I am being impatient? Thanks for any help!
