One of our two Rhode Island Reds (both almost 2 years old) has definitely molted. Poor Phoebe is like Pigpen in Peanuts.... but instead of dirt, feathers fly wherever she goes. She is so utterly disheveled and completely cranky but, oddly, still a fairly regular egglayer. The eggs are kind of odd, somewhat thin shelled and positively HUGE. Very watery also. Her eggs come every other day now. Peaches, is showing little sign of molting (possibly a few feathers astray) but she hasn't laid an egg in 10+ days. She stopped laying about the time Phoebe's molt began in earnest. She is her normal happy, affectionate self, eating well, pooping well etc. The weather is cold here now (NW Ohio) but warmer than last year and they were laying like mad then. We expected a slowdown come winter but no eggs in 10 days has this New Flockman a little concerned. Comments?
