    Molting that is. I haven't seen any loose feathers in the pens for weeks and I am anxious to post pictures of my Cameo hens to get opinions on them. I want to make sure that all the faded feathers are replaced so I can rule out that possibility. I'll probably have to cool my jets anyway as they are not predicting any sunshine for the foreseeable future. [​IMG]

    Some seem to be done while others i can tell they are still getting new feathers to replace the old ones, they seem to loose feathers here and there all year but the hard mold starts late in summer for the peacocks and the hens get their hard molt on after laying is over.[​IMG]
    Hatchlings i kept from this year are still molting , i am just glad they do not molt like chickens... that can be pretty Fugly [​IMG]
