Our chickens hit the 18 month mark, which is when they molt. They stop laying eggs during that time, so they can devote all their energy to “changing their clothes.” Buying eggs just feels wrong when you have a bunch of chickens and it was a strange feeling to have to ask guests to bring eggs for a pasta-making venture.

Thankfully, they have begun to lay again. After they molt, they lay fewer, but bigger, eggs.
