my flock is having weird molts this year, in fact one of the girls just started yesterday! And someone else is starting judging from the feathers in the coop. I thought everyone was almost done, but must have missed some. I'm grateful for the mild winter, normally this would be disastrous to have a sudden and hard molt in mid december.
Glad to hear I was not the only one experiencing a real molt this year. I keep thinking I should of left the electric netting up longer.
Very mild here. We just had our first snowfall last Friday. Set a record for our area for being so late. And its all melted now with a high of 60s for Christmas.
I've been giving the hens lots of meat, eggs, fruit & homemade suet. Still no eggs. Perhaps the stew pot set out in their area would show them I mean business?
