Hi All, New chicken guy here, my girls are about 6 months and a few weeks after they all finally started laying I noticed my speckled sussex had a patch of feathers missing on her back. About 4 days later I noticed the same on my australorp. It now looks like maybe they are pin feathers coming in on the sussex. I've been trying to google but I haven't seen much on a partial molt this early? They REALLY don't want to be touched which also makes me think molt. Also I believe one or both have stopped laying or slowed down considerably. I just thought it would move quicker than this if it is a molt? Maybe I'm watching too much now but they don't seem to be progressing one way or another. No rooster so that's out. I have never noticed any of the girls picking on one another, just once over a pizza crust. No mites that I could see on the girls and didn't find any mites in their coop and they aren't avoiding the coop at all. They have more than enough room I believe. Could diet be an issue? I was probably giving too much food scraps there for a week or two. I've cut way back on that and only give them scraps in the afternoon after they've been able to eat the feed first. I'm assuming a molt? But very new so just wanted some reassurance or things to check. They don't seem unhappy or uncomfortable or anything so I was just going to wait and see, but if there is something I should be doing I wanted to make sure I'm doing it. Thanks!
