Hey guys! I went into my coop yesterday and one of my hen’s feathers are all over the coop! She has patches of feathers missing on her neck, back, both wings, and her tail. I picked her up and I can see that the feathers weren’t ripped out by anything and they’re just falling out. When I carried her around there left a trail of feathers. I attached photos. I looked it up and I think it’s annual molting, but I’ve never seen it like this before haha wow. One weird thing though is that she’s the only one it’s happening to. She is also my oldest chicken, being six years old. Maybe this means she’s healthy?
