OK, couldn't find a topic that says molting. I have three hens. One is a barred rock who started molting 6-8 weeks ago, lost a fair amount of feathers and they have all grown back. Next was the Wyandotte, she is now starting to regrow her feathers, and lastly is the black Cochin. And all three have pretty much stopped laying, and before that they were all good for one egg a day. Now I get one occasionally. I realize it's getting somewhat cooler and the days are shorter. Here's the question: the barred rock, as of yesterday, has lost a ton of feathers again even though she just got done molting and grew her feathers back. They are all around, for lack of a better word to describe, her hip area, both sides. Feathers everywhere. And she seems to be kind of picking at them. Their pen looked like something got in there and had their way with the barred rock, but I know that didn't happen, and because they have a big backyard in addition to their coop and penned in area where they all go, still feathers everywhere. One more thing, she is a loner and the other two are buddies. She's also the smartest, and the most aggressive when it come to eating worms we throw to them. Past couple of days she hangs back. Any ideas, suggestions or solutions? Is she sick? Otherwise, she just acts like she always does....Thank you!
