    My white leghorn, molted this fall at 18mos old. She has filled in her feathers nicely but has yet to start laying again, it's been 2 months since she has produced. Will she start again or is she in a permenent henopause?

    She should start again - - - -

    Has anything changed ? ?

    Do you have other chickens with her that are laying ? ?

    I think a lot of mine are waiting on longer days.

    Thanks for responses, she is in with others that are laying. The only change is my other wlhorn died several weeks ago, they were buddies. So I figure this may have an impact. My husband keeps threatening her w freezer camp but it hasn't worked, lol. I wouldn't do it anyway she's my pet parrot, always up on my shoulder whenever she can get a chance.
