I have 7 hens that are 18 months old, and they are different breeds: one Golden Comet, 3 Easter Eggers, 1 Cuckoo Maran and 2 Cherry Eggers. The Cuckoo Maran went through a mini molt last January, when she only lost some of her neck feathers. In late August, she lost a ton of feathers. The poor girl, her wings and breast were bare! She is coming along nicely and is looking better. Around the middle of September, one of the Cherry Eggers lost quite a bit of feathers, but hers seem to have come in much faster. Yesterday, one of the Easter Eggers lost a bunch of feathers. The girl looks terrible. Here is my question: will all of these 7 hens have a really hard molt, or does it vary from chicken to chicken or breed to breed?
