Has anyone else had a long molting season this year? Our egg production has decreased from 12 a day to 2 or 3 a day. Their feathers Are everywhere as well. It seems like every couple of years this happens. I up their food by adding scratch with seeds and meal worms to help them out.

Mine have been taking turns molting for about a month. Out of 8 chickens I'm getting one reliable egg a day from one younger girl and one of my older ladies is laying her egg consistently every second to third day (she hasn't molted yet, I'm sure it's coming). The rest look like my dog has been rolling them around in her mouth and the run looks like a massacre with the feathers everywhere ;)
