    A few of my chickens went through a minor molt around August or so. Lost some feathers but not a ton. My BSL lost a bunch around her face and neck. Neck came back, but around her face and ears, still bald.... is this something to worry about? She is a meany and I haev been thinking of culling her anyway. Just dont know if this is nothing or something.

    I wouldn't worry. It takes awhile for the buzzard look to go away. She may not be finished molting yet.
