I have no idea what is up! Do chickens molt? My Ameracauna's feathers began falling out this week, and she's super skittish (unlike her usual confident self). She hasn't laid an egg in about 10 days to 2 weeks. Could she have a parasite? She lives in a coop with 3 other hens (1 each gold laced wyandotte, plymouth barred rock, buff orp). Anyone have any ideas? I am very concerned and we are going to be out of town this weekend. Thanks for any/all replies.
