    My girl just recently went through molting. After she started laying again, it only lasted for a few days then she stopped again. She then didn't eat much, in fact, hardly at all. I thought maybe it was the beginning of the end for her. But then she started eating again and with a good appetite. I thought that soon, after her system gets back to normal that she would then start laying again. Now she seems to be going into molt again! Has this happened to anyone else? I'm not sure just what is going on with her. Any thoughts on this?
