As I was going to take care of my two Mille Fleur hens today, I noticed one was starting to lose its beard.. Yes its beard.. I've chickens for quite some time, and have never experienced anything like this. Could someone tell me what is happening?? The two hens are quite lovely, and are really docile. They love each other and don't see to have any problems with each other. Is she possibly moulting? I checked, and she didn't seem to have mites. Usually you can tell right? Anyways, any help would seriously be appreciated. Thanks!
