My Buff Brahama is appox 4 years old and has always had such pretty feathers..she has been our Roosters favorite and always laid an egg a day. Yesterday I noticed lot's of feathers in the coop..I though for a moment someone was attacked..then I noticed Miss Maggie my Buff Brahama was missing feathers all around her neck in the front and she looked like she was wind blown...I have had her for a year now and this is the first time I have noticed any type of molting...is it normal for hens to molt this time of year? She is still eating and drinking and runs for treats...just looks like she is going bald! I was not able to pick her up to look for lice or mites..but do not see any on the other hens...could it be a simple molt? Is there anything I need to do for her? I am nervous because it is turning cold..
