Has anyone ever notice their hens acting strangely or sickly in the first few days of a molt? Some of our EEs have spent a day or two snuggled up in a nest before the feathers fall out. Now our 9 month old leghorn who was laying regularly has stopped laying, and right before she stopped, she spent 2 days acting crazy( or crazier than usual-- she IS a leghorn): flying to the roof and over fences like she had never done before. She still has feathers, but no eggs in almost 2 weeks. I think the comb is a bit paler too, so I am thinking molt.
