As anyone else noticed their birds molting earlier this year? not to mention that the leaves seem to be turning and some falling already. My henhouse looks like I had several fox attacks in it, feathers, feathers everywhere. I was planning on butchering my 28 month old white rocks layers the weekend of Columbus day (when I ususally cull my older layers) but I may have to put it off a while. Nothing worse in my experinece any way then cleaning a chicken during molt. I don't want to skin.
