    My poor Lucy. I think she is being picked on.....or she is hormonal with her upcoming first lay. She has been eating, drinking & foraging normally. She hasn't been as social, is squatting frequently & been very docile. She is a crested & has lost most of her fabulous tuft! She is 18 weeks today! Just worried. All (3) are females. Below is before & current pic of her tuft. You can also see her chest looks bumpy.

    She's having her second molt, I believe, and will begin laying eggs after.
