Hi everyone! I’m kind of concerned for my hen, Cider, because out of nowhere she started losing feathers. Molting now would be strange I thought because she usually molts around fall-winter and it’s summer currently. She is almost 2 years old and has gone through 2 molts already.
I’ve checked her for mites/ticks and found nothing. Her diet hasn’t changed and she is acting quite healthy, also the weather is normal so I have no idea why she is losing so many feathers.
If anyone has any ideas of what’s going on I would appreciate it. Thank you!! :)

My chickens molt twice a year usually. Right when summer starts though it's only a few of their downy feathers.
Feather fixer works for me!
