I’ve had my chickens since April of this year. I didn’t think I’d have a molt this year, everything I’ve read says about 18 months. But I’ve had a chicken loosing feathers from her head and neck, and what looks like new feathers starting to replace them. No roosters, only hens. How early CAN chickens molt? Does this sound like molting? Egg production is definitely down, I was getting 6 or 7 eggs a day now I’m down to 3 or 4, 5 if I’m lucky.
