But do roosters molt? Mine has lost all his tail feathers and half of them on his neck...
Yep, all birds molt.
I have a white leghorn hen who is doing that right now...........it is only 9 months old.....is that possible?
In my experience, they do a sort of mini-molt at about 9 months old. The big one comes at about 18 months and it can be rough!

I think mine is doing the mini molt - all he beautiful tail feathers are gone and half his neck is naked. He looks funny.
