Hi, new chicken guardian with a ~4 year old chicken who brooded on a wooden egg the entire month of June, then perked up once it was removed. Does molting always follow brooding? Sometime in July, her neck cape started to look a little greasy/black/droopy and those feathers are starting to fall out. It is starting to cover a wider area of her neck, but I am not finding a lot of feathers gone elsewhere on body. She has been laying eggs every day or day and a half in July/August,but stopped one week ago. She is otherwise curious, energetic, and a good eater. I've searched google and forums for pictures, but I really can't find anything that looks similar. Does this look familiar to anybody?
