First molt?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My pullets are about 3 months and my silver laced Wyandottes all seem to be molting? I'm finding black feathers everywhere. No one looks naked. Should I be concerned or is this normal? The production reds and the buffs have lost a few feathers but nothing like this blow out

Chicks go through a couple of molts as they grow before getting their adult feathers at 5-7 months, otherwise the feathers wouldn't be big enough to cover them as they grew.

Ok I didn't notice the other dropping this many maybe it's because they're darker and easier to see! Sorry for the dumb question

There are no dumb questions, except for ones not asked. 😁
