My House looks like a pillow fight took place! Eggin's is right on time with her molting, she's about 15 months old now I would guess. My question is this: Being a pet chicken she wears a diaper that my wife sews up for her; that being said I think that it was bothering her so now she's running around naked and I've got my carpet cleaner spray handy. She's not eating a lot, I can get her to eat...especially baby food (beef!?), and only if I hold her and bring the food near my face, like I was a rooster that found it for her (I think she's in love with me...not sure) Here's my question after that background info: is she walking funny because she's all miserable and itchy? also I'm not rough at all, but I help 'preen' her and remove loose feathers...she really appreciates/enjoys this, but I want to make sure it's ok and healthy....like I said I'm not tugging or plucking any feathers that aren't ready. I've read on here that dried wheat and extra protein can help speed this along. about how long does this whole uncomfy process take? She wants to go to bed early and doesn't take her dust baths right now (can say as I blame her for that tho) thanks peeps!
