    I have 3 girls gone through molting. My Speckled Sussex and Cuckoo Maran started probably in August and have finished their molts for a while now and no eggs YET! it's been a loong while.

    My EE started molting and stopped and she is also not laying.

    I have a total of 6 girls and only 2 are laying (they have not gone through their molting yet). The only one molting right now is my RIR, the rest have no sign of wanting to lay ever again

    Any ideas on what I can do to change this?

    My GLW took 3 weeks to molt and then laid only 2 the first week, but is now back to her normal self, thank goodness I was missing her large brown eggs:) So, hang in there, hopefully she will get back into the swing of things soon!!!!
