    At what age should I expect my red sex linked hens to molt? Born May 8 2010.

    I've heard some people say their sex links, especially ISAs don't molt but I don't know if it's true. Other info I've read says the fall. But I don't think their first one. Wish I could help more...

    In my experience regardless of breed, they skip the first fall and then molt every fall thereafter.
