    Hens who are moulting do not like to be touched. It is uncomfortable for them when they are growing in new feathers, and some can be a bit down, preferring to be alone at that time.

    It can last for a couple of months so I wouldn't be expecting an over-night turn-around. Just let her be for now, give he some space, and hopefully she will come around to you when she's feeling a bit better.
