    My banty cochin fajita is going through molt. it was pouring today. I was shocked as to how gross her feet look. How lond does molt last anyways? She started in the beginning of October. She was attacked by a cat, losing feathers, and then went broody, her taking out her own feathers, and now she's losing more, and just now getting pin feathers.

    Looks like wet feet to me! Molt can be two weeks up too two months. Depends on the bird and if it is their first or primary molting.
