One of my chickens starting molting today. I'd been expecting it for a while since she's getting over an illness. There are feathers everywhere and they're literally flying off her. Anyway the level of flies has skyrocketed in the run! Usually it's hard to find one. Now they're swarming all over any poo they can find and boy, do those poos stink. So is stinky poo a side effect of molting?
