    Is this normal? This is her first molt, never imagined she would look this bad because she started getting a bald head then she got worse. Is their a supplement that would help? I've been giving her scratch with lots of sunflower seeds in the evening.

    cur down on scratch and give her high protein

    that will help the molt go faster

    she needs to recover teh protein thats lost in the feathers
