Do roosters molt?
And if they do, how does sit affect them?
Yes...I don't think it really affects them, except they might not feel so pretty.
Yes, roosters do go through a molt.
It makes them stop laying eggs for a while until the molt is over.
(just in case...the part about molting is true; the part about the eggs is a joke)
hhmmm, wonder when my boys are going to get on with it.
P.S. I am a big Hiro fan.......he is beautiful.
Is he a sweet heart too or just nice to look at?
My roosters are not laying-hey, they must be molting!
Quote:You beat me to it!
They molt, its just not as noticable because there is no decrease in egg production
Quote:Awww thank you!! He's a good boy, probably because I cuddle and carry him around the yard all the time. Hopefully he keeps his manners.
I think they do,but I haven't noticed mine moulting as bad as the hens.
