Do some breeds of chickens shed more then others? I know from experience this is true with dogs: my australian cattle dog shed a ton, my terrier not so much. The reason I'm asking is I have four 3 month old girls. The Dominique is shedding much more then the Speckled Sussex, Americauna or the Buff Orpington. I am not observing any behavior like over preening, or aggression from the other girls. But nine of ten feathers I find in the coop are hers.
