    My Maran hen has lost some neck feathers. She's not one year old yet. Could she be plucking them herself or is it normal for her to lose a few?

    One of my BR pullets molted at 8 months. It's possible she is too. Is she still laying?

    She's probably moulting, I have two who are moulting right now.
