Hey All, Quick question...I have a chicken that I bought back in May who is 8-10 months old. She was sold to me as an Australorp mix, however she appears to by some type of Leghorn/Wyandotte mix. I'm not sure - she lays a white egg, has a slender build, blue sheen in sunlight, etc. Anyways, for the question. How young can a chicken be to begin their molt. She stopped laying about a month ago, and now she is losing feathers on various parts of her body (tail, chest, wings). She is still 80% covered and has a solid layer to keep her warm, but she seems to be showing all the signs of a molt. She is eating great, drinking, jumping around like all the others, so she doesn't appear sick. I was told that chickens molt about a year and a half into their life. Is this a molt, or should I be worried? Thanks!
