Recently I have noticed a sea of buff feathers all over the place. I am no stranger to molting in birds since before we got the chickens we had our last little parakeet still alive. My question is are all those feathers normal parts of molting or parts of something bigger. I have noticed that the possible australorps are doing the same thing their orpie and possible leghorn sisters are doing. Today alone our little orpington shook her feathery body and a ton of feathers popped out. Do we need to change their food or give them more of something and less of something else?
