    None of my chickens have started to molt yet, accept for my barred rock rooster, but he's only molting his neck and tail feathers, he's not really ugly so I don't think he'll have a good chance of winning, I guess I'll jus have to wait some more until others molt! :barnie Love all of the beautiful molting pics. everyone! ;) :p

    I love how their new feathers resemble paint brushes for the first few days! They always look so pretty and fresh after going through a molt. I always forget that they also go into "seclusion" for the last 2 serious weeks of their molt! Several of my ducks are doing this feather thing right now, too, lol. I will try and get a picture of them...

    Here is Annie, one of my Muscovy girls. Duck molts look a lot less bad than chicken molts! lol!

    Pictures are great, everyone!
    My hens are molting but so lightly it's not even worth posting. :rolleyes:
    I had a pigeon who's in mid-molt, but I just got rid of her :he
