    I know molting is pretty breed dependent so......I have 3 Ameraucana hens and 1 Ameraucana Rooster (Brown/Red variety-LF) and they are molting right now and have for close to 5-6 weeks !!! Is this normal?
    I have them on a high protein feed and also offer scratch as a treat in the evenings. I really don't want to put a light in there because I want them to be as natural as they can be....just kind of impatient for eggs. [​IMG]
    Thank you so much
