    I have 5 hens about year & half old and molting one at a time.I have noticed that the one that's molting gets picked on by the others like trying to keep it from the food I bring them. Is this normal ?

    I have 6 just a little older than yours, molting at different rates and have not seen what you are. But I leave food in the run. They still share the treats without issues.
