Hi Everyone! My pullets are just starting to molt. Is it especially late to start molting, is that abnormal? I'm a bit of a paranoid chicken mom LOL!

Especially on the red hen it looks as a flock mate is feather pecking. Late molts are not uncommon , but I'm not certain that is what you are dealing with.

They were born in the spring, could that make a difference in molting as opposed to chicks born in fall, lay in spring, then molt the next fall?
