    My chicken is molting really hard and it is dragging her beak in the dirt and walking backwards? She did this last year during a molt. Any suggestions, thank you

    im not an expert here, but it sounds like vitamins B, E, and selenium deficiency. i would give vitamin and electrolyte solution - if it gets worse you might look into shots. this seems to be most common in silkies (may help with more research), but any chicken can suffer from it.
