My Black French Copper Marans had a light molt in November in which she lost some of her neck and back feathers. They grew back in by February, and she resumed laying eggs in early March. (This photo is from two weeks ago. She has lost a considerable amount of feathers since then.) A few weeks ago, I noticed that her bottom was bare of feathers. Soon her legs started losing feathers, too, and tonight I noticed her upper chest has a large bare patch. I have checked for mites, and she and the other two birds are clean. She's still laying eggs. Is it possible she's going through a hard molt? She's looking really raggedy and I'm starting to get concerned. Many thanks for your insight.
