    I have an Easter Egger hen who just grew her feathers back after a pretty heavy molt. She looks great now and is almost 2 years old. About how long will it take for her to start laying again? When chickens molt in the fall do they stop laying all winter?

    About 3 months from the start of the molt until she starts laying. Some will start up a little quicker, some a bit slower.
