Hello, I have a bantam chocolate orpington that survived a hawk attack about a month ago. Today I noticed that her feathers around her neck are sort of gone. She's only about 6 months old so I didn't think she would molt, but I am wondering if it's part of the recovery and stress from the hawk attack? She wasn't too badly injured - she was able to rejoin the flock in three days without any trouble. The flock is very mellow and I haven't seen any bullying so I don't think she's getting picked at.
