Re: [Just-Food-City-Chicken-Meetup­-NYC] I have two chicken that stop lying eggs - It could be a molt. they slow down after 2 years and can stop anywhere from 3-5 yrs old. But they also molt 2 times per year and this year there seems to be a pretty deep molt going on in most flocks that I know in this area. Melina Melina B. Oct 14, 2013 2:24 PM
Re: [Just-Food-City-Chicken-Meetup­-NYC] I have two chicken that stop lying eggs - They are probably molting, sometimes their molt is not too severe and you barely notice but they will stop laying.
