What is the longest molt you've endured? I'm going on 60 days since my bantam cochin, Petra, layed an egg. There was no obvious molting with her, maybe a little feather thinning, but now she's fluffed up better than before and acts quite chipper and happy...but no laying. All her coop mates are laying, even the other bantam cochin. They only freerange under supervision, so no egg hiding. This past summer she was my best layer and averaged missing only 3 days PER MONTH with no eggs. What is up???
