    I am noticing chicken feathers in the chicken run outside. ¿Is this normal? Its a good size run and they are not crowded or anything like that.

    Chickens lose feathers all the time and when they molt you won't believe how may feathers you will find.

    When my chickens molted, it looked like a feather bomb went off.
