    When it comes to molting, six-year old Alice goes about it in a very systematic fashion. I especially love the bobbed tail look.

    It's always the patterned breeds that look the most pathetic.

    My rooster decided that was the way to molt, too! [​IMG]

    It's embarrassing when a rooster lets himself get that frowzy.

    I don't have any horribly pathetic molters at the moment. Some looked like they were close to looking pathetic, but not yet. My hatchery BR hasn't molted yet, and she was hilarious last year. I'm just biding my time for that picture.
