    Hi folks,

    I've had my hens for about 20 months and I've started to notice one is sheding feathers around her neck area. I'm not sure if this is molting or something else to be concerned about. I've attached a photo for you to examine. Give me your thoughts and suggestions on what I should do.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick response and the link to the molting article. I feel a lot better now.

    Thanks again.
