    Hello fellow desert dwellers! I'm wondering if our chickens moult at a different season? When do yours usually moult?

    I don't live in the arid southwest but since you're in the northern hemisphere and molting is normally a function of day length, I'd say your birds when in their second year and beyond, will molt in the autumn just like most others.
