    Is she molting or what? There are a ton of feathers falling out from one of our Americaunas so I figure it's our oldest lady molting. Let me know what you think. Thank you!

    She may very well be going through a late molt. Just monitor to make sure that she does not become hypothermic. It will have to get really cold for that to happen.
