I was just wondering why my hen has not started molting. She was born March 2017 and this should be her first time molting

Not all birds molt 'hard' and fast....some go soft and slow.
It can be hard to tell, look closely for pin feathers emerging.
Handle bird carefully tho, those pin feathers are 'uncomfortable',
and if broken can bleed copiously(why they are also called 'blood feathers').
