Possible Molting?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a few pictures of one of my hens that might be starting a molt but I haven't noticed a lot of feathers missing off of her. She is not laying eggs and it looks like she might be getting new feathers but only on her tail and wings. Can someone tell me if it looks like she might be molting? [IMG]

How old is bird?

Just looks like messy feathers to me, they can get that way.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
