She was been loosing feathers for 1-2 months now. she has got some back
perhaps. hard to tell with the pictures. most chickens do go thru a molting stage sometime during their lifespan.
Chickens do molt in the summer sometimes.
Has your weather been really funky? I've read several members say that their flocks seem to be having a mini-moult and it may be due to the really strange, late rains that we've had here.
shes a year old. and yes we have had funky weather cold and night, hot during the day. sometimes rainy in the morning. we also had a late spring. shes been like this for 1-2 months tho.
I don't think this is molting. When chickens molt, don't they loose all their feathers in about 3 wks? I'd be looking at what other hen(s) are pulling feathers.
why would they pull feathers I supply unlimited feed?
It has nothing to do with feed. It has to do with pecking order and some of those higher up hens can be real poops!!
Oh. And I read online that it has to do with light they will pick at each other at night it there is light on. and I leave my light on 24/7 so im turning it off at night now.
