    So our white leghorn finished her 2nd molt about 2 months ago...since then she hasn't laid an egg. I also have 2 young marans who were laying regularly and have stopped. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on with these girls? We have a mixed flock of 12, everyone else is laying. Thanks

    None of my older one are laying yet either, and it's quite normal. Most will start up within the next couple of months.
