I recently lost one of my original wyandottes, Fluffy, who I raised for 4 years. A question I never got answered was why her feathers became the way they did. The first 2 years she was just like the other wyandottes. Normal feathers, poofy and the biggest girl I had. 2 years ago she went through a molt but her feathers didn't grow back. She was nearly naked and was acting sickly so we took her inside gave her antibiotics for a cold she caught from the lack of feathers and put a special lotion on her skin which made her feel better and she soon started to grow her feathers back. But the big difference was her feathers weren't normal. They looked more like a cross between silkie and frizzled feathers. We thought since she had gotten sick her feathers just grew back strange and next molt it would correct itself. Well it never did and she was fuzzy her whole life after. I would ask people who came over if they knew what it could be but they just thought she was a frizzle. I am 110% positive she is not a frizzle. She was a pure bred silver laced wyandotte and her sisters never had the issue she had gotten. She had normal feathers up until she got sick. One person said she may have gotten a virus that she survived and the damage left was to her feathers. She was a happy healthy hen that layed eggs and was one of the top hens in a large flock. Her health had recently seemed a little "off" within the passed few days and she passed today. Still not sure of how or why she died but we think it maybe something to do with her possibly just scumming to the damage that something could have caused or it was just her time to pass. Any thoughts of what it could have been? Feel free to ask questions. Here are some pictures of her with her sisters. You can pin point Fluffy easily.
