I have a 2 1/2 year old hen that has never 'really' molted to say. Her feathers are brittle, nasty, freyed and all around not good. I have watched her for the last year waiting for a molt. nothing. Looked carefully for new little pin feathers here and there. her back is partially bare because of my 'Bird. She has never seemed to be overmated, but who knows! I thought she was getting sick the last few weeks. - Cranky, lethargic, hunched up on the roost. Gave her a shot of antibiotic. She has broken and freyed outer feathers and her downy feathers left. Monday I noticed she was preening and a few of the downy feathers were falling out. Tuesday I picked her up and about 5 or 6 came out in my hand. This morning I see a dozen or so down feathers on the coop floor. Can she be molting in JANUARY???????? normal?
