My chickens are molting like crazy! We have 11 hens and we used to get between 6 and 8 eggs a day. They were very reliable. But now we get one egg every other day. Even in past winters they have given us 4 or 5 eggs a day. Three of our hens are also almost bald. Several others, including the rooster, have been losing feathers at a rapid rate. Several of them have started limping. Is this normal? We have had chickens for several years and never seen anything quite like this. Help!
