Our 11 pullets are 3 months old, obviously not laying yet, and there are feathers everywhere in their run & coop (LOTS of feathers). The feathers I see in the run are all sizes, soft fluffy ones, and longer tail feathers. I also notice loose feathers in the yard too. They don't have any bald spots and still have their tails. I haven't caught them picking at each other. They free range for about 4-5 hours a day. When they are first let out of their run, I've seen them drop feathers as they run flapping their wings. Could they be molting at this young age? I didn't think chickens molted until they were older and laying. They are still on starter/grow crumbles. Besides the crumbles, they free range (we still have some green grass & green weeds here where we live), and I give them occasional treats of apple or tomato, etc. Could they be losing feathers because of their diet or is this their first molt?
