    My girls went through a molt this winter and have not layed eggs regularly since. I get an egg or two every other day. They are only 2 years old! I dewormed them, gave them a round of antibiotics and still no eggs. Any ideas? If they have stopped laying then they need to go.

    According to a lot of what I have read from the university experiment stations, egg production naturally drops off around two years of age. Two years, as far as I understand it, is pretty much retirement age for layers. If you don't notice any signs of illness, it's probably nothing to worry about.
