I have four hens all of age to lay. I usually got 4 eggs a day and every other day maybe 3. But now for a week or two it's 3 and not four at all

Is one taking a rest or are they all taking turns on the resting. Should I be concerned.

It's natural for hens to take a rest. No worries! Coils be molting or a change in the weather. Could be anything. If its just been a week or so I wouldn't worry. Or even a couple weeks I wouldn't worry...

Yep..that gal looks to be molting. Everyone seems to slow down in molt, depending upon how hard they are each molting.
