I have a flock of of 10 BO and GLW hens, with a SLW roo. All of them are 9 months old. The hens seem to be doing great (except for a bit of feather loss in the rump area - BAAAD roo). Hank the Roo seems to be moulting, especially in his lower chest area, down around his stomach. Is this normal for a Roo so young? And in the dead of winter? Or is he exhausted from all his, um, er, "servicing" duties? Don't know whether to feel sorry for him, or just envious? .
