    A hen that has lost feathers due to breeding,how long will it take for her to grow them back. Also how long if exposed to non Lakenvelder roosters do we need to wait for breeding pure with a Lakenvelder rooster. We want no mutt chickens LOL

    I don't know the answer to the breeding question, but i think that you have to wait for a molt to get new feathers.
