Well it's official, my flock is moulting! Today it looks like a feather bomb has gone off in the coop and runs. I did a head count just to make sure I didn't loose any birds to a predator (the piles of feathers were that bad). I watched as one hen shook and feathers landed in a puddle around her, LOL. I expect that in the next week or so I'll have a bunch of ugly, nearly naked and grumpy hens.
PS I wonder if there will be a new BYC Worst Moult 2012/2013 contest? I'm sure I'll be able to take some embarrassing pics like this one from Fall 2010.
