I know my flock is molting by seeing a few feathers here and there. But my golden wyandotte is losing all of her feathers!!!! I can pick the feathers right off her... no problem. She shakes and the feathers fly.
She a year and a half. I know she's not picked on.

Does anyone know what this could be... she's one of my favorites!

I haven't been through a molt yet with mine, but I've read here that they need extra protein during this time. Supplement them with black sunflower seeds or cat food.

Hopefully someone will post with more information for you.

Oh I hope that's what is going on with her...
I'm sick about it.

Our feed and seed store said it might be a genetic disorder...

We get so cold here in the Pacific NW I don't know she'd last the winter
