    I have 2 SLWs that are close to being a year old. They started laying in August 2013 and have been laying consistently until now. I have not seen an egg from either one of my girls in 1.5 weeks. I have noticed they are molting a bit as there are feathers wherever they dust outside and in the coop. 1) Are they supposed to be molting this time of year? 2) Would this be the only cause to the stop in egg production?

    Please let me know!
    Thank you :)
