Molting Golden Comets

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My dozen golden comets have been molting (i think) since about mid July.  At least some of them have at different times.  They are the same age so I don't understand why the molting has been staggered.  Any ideas?

this is not uncommon for the same age and breed of chicken to molt at different times.....it all varies w/ the bird itself. they will molt when theyre ready, and u cant rush mother nature....
