Good afternoon. I have 5 hens, 2 roosters, and eight 2 week old chicks. I have been raising chickens for only a year, but I find it very enjoyable, and I consider my chickens part of my family. My hens are molting- I think - but one in particular has been since she was about 6 months old. She has never laid, and she is now almost a year old, still molting in some areas, but COMPLETELY bald on her back and wings. I hope I don't have to cull her. Other than that, things are great!
