    Quick question chicken peeps :
    2 of my hens wear aprons because of the Rooster, they are in full molt mode, should I remove the aprons? there are quite a few new feathers coming in under them, will it cause a problem? Don't want to hinder the growth!!

    Thanks so very much
    Patti

    I would remove the rooster to give the hens some peace during the molt, as well as removing the aprons.
