So I've been finding gold feathers on the floor under Buffy for a couple days now and thinking "$%#& little Wyandottes, gotta get those peepers back on", but today I decided to check her out more closely and she appears to be in full-blown molt -- neck all over pin-feathers and if you pulled on her chest feathers gently they'd come out. She's also had an attitude change, much like the adults in molt -- very PMS-y. Now I've heard of the 9-mo "mini molt" but I didn't know that it looked so much like the real thing. Is this normal? I've already checked for mites and lice and didn't see anything obvious.
