    Anyone have any ideas if this looks normal? I don't think she is moulting but I am concerned she hasn't laid in weeks and looks pretty bad. [​IMG]

    My barred rock looked pretty similar when she molted. I think she actually looked worse. There were piles of feathers everywhere. I just kept a close eye on her and eventually noticed the new feathers coming in. She's beautiful again with all new soft, fluffy feathers.

    My barred rocks looked pretty much the same, or worse when molting. It is not unusual for laying to slow or stop during this phase. Hang in there!
