    For the past couple of nights I've been finding a bunch of white feathers surrounding the area were my 66 week old White Leghorn Snow White hangs out on the roost. It looks like she exploded in there! I watched her race away from the coop and drop a load of feathers as she went. So either they are having some serious pillow fights at night or she's molting.

    Haha! I think so! I did hear a bunch of giggling and I think I saw nail polish on some toes...

    It you Freak out and start counting heads, that's molting. It does look like a pillow exploded.
