My 9 month old frizzle Cochin leaves a trail of feathers everywhere she goes for the last 3 days. Could she be molting? Do hens molt in the winter? Is she too young for a molt? She seems otherwise fine and just came out of being broody a week ago. We introduced baby chicks to the flock two weeks ago. The transition has been smooth and the top hen adopted the chicks. My hen that is losing feathers seems fine with the chicks and isn't picked on by the mama hen. But I'm wondering if the introduction of the chicks could've stressed her out enough to make her lose feathers. (Even though it didn't appear stressful to me) Advice please.
