Hello everyone, I have a question about my hens. Two of my girls are 18 months old and the other two are a year old and they are really starting to look shabby. The rooster has always been with my girls he is a Rhode Island Red and my girls are Golden Comets. So my question is if the sudden appearance of shabby feathers on their backs and missing feathers at the base of the comb are from my rooster or molting? I have ordered saddles just in case but it sure is hot in Alabama right now, don’t want to make them anymore uncomfortable than they probably are.
