I have 6 hens that I purchased as pullets that started laying in May. I have been consistently getting 5-6 eggs per day. I do not have a rooster. I have noticed that 4 of the hens have been loosing feathers in the area above the tail for about the last month. It has not affected the number of eggs being layed and they are not picking at each other. Is this a molt? As you can tell these are my first chickens. LUV Them. Here is a picture of what it looks like. Thanks!
