    I am unsure if this is the right place to post, but...........my 14 week old Golden Polish rooster seems to be loosing his tail feathers?[​IMG] He is active, eating, running..all seems ok except he looks like he has only 3 or 4 tail feathers left. The Australorpe hens all look fine...still all loosing their fuzzy baby feathers..but fine. Do they molt this early? When they molt can it just be tail feathers?
