    Poor Potpie... she's been going through this awful molt for months and months. Terrie sent her a saddle to cover up her nakedness, and just when she started growing her back feathers back, her tail fell out! [​IMG]

    Oh, poor Potpie! She needs a cape, not a saddle, to cover her bare bum.

    Pretty chicken! Now I have to wonder. Someone told me my roo was a poorly colored BLRW and he looks nothing like that. Back to the drawing board.

    Quote:Her entire back was bare... the poor thing. She looks so much better now! I think she can live with no tail. She at least has her butt fluff. [​IMG]

    Aw, that poor girlie. I have several orpie hens that look just like that too. They were even more pitiful when they looked liked porcupines. I'm so happy to see them filling back in with new plumage. Winter's coming..brrrr.

    I have one unidentified breed bird that was practically bald when we got her. Her neck feathers are all back and some of the back ones, but the poor thing has one very long and very large tail feather sticking straight up in the air. Just one.

    Quote:Awww... that's how Potpie looked for the past week, then she shead her last tail feather! At least she won't be naked for the winter (if winter ever comes! :mad: ).

    I just wish the feathers would grow back so I can figure out what breed she is. Her eggs don't help - they are light brown.

    Winter is here up here. 45 last night, and it's been about 75 here today. I love this weather.

    Awww poor naked lady! I hope she grows her feathers back in time for winter. If not, you can knit her a sweater. [​IMG]
