    Hi all!! Haven't posted in a very long time but I have a BO who is going on 3 years, her and her coop mate both went through a molt about the same time, she started first. My other chicken a GLW has grown her feathers back and seems just fine. But my BO hasn't grown most of her feathers back and has lost a noticeable amount of weight also her comb has been rather pale lately. I haven't changed the way I feed them or water them. They started losing feathers maybe a month ago... I inspected her and saw no signs of any parasites... Her poo seems normal to me. Any suggestions??

    Is she eating and drinking? When is the last time she layed? Is she sitting down a lot?
