I am new to keeping chickens -have just bought 3 beautiful 8 month old Ameraucana pullets about 10 days ago. One started after a couple of days to have really messed up feathers on wings and tail - she seemed to be pecked on and I thought that was why, but she gave us 3 eggs in the first 5 days. The other two aren't laying at all. The past week she stopped laying and there are feathers all over the coop and outdoor pen. After reading some of the posts, seems like she must be molting from the stress of moving. Is that why she stopped laying? How often do chickens molt and how long does the molting process take? Any info would help. Thanks.
