White stuff on chickens head feathers? (pics included)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I've noticed some weird white stuff on the feathers on my chickens head.  Is it a mold or something?  If so, what should I do?

 

She is a 3 year old Welsummer.  She seems otherwise happy, pecking around the yard and whatnot.  I will admit, some of the bedding in their coop is a little wet.  I'll be changing that very soon.

 

Pictures below:

 

 

Thanks!

Those are pin feathers, she's molting. It's normal.

Thanks!

 

It's funny, she's been through several molts while we've had her and this is the first time I've noticed such conspicuous pin feathers.  Usually I can tell because of the feathers covering every square inch of my yard and coop.
