    My dozen golden comets have been molting (i think) since about mid July. At least some of them have at different times. They are the same age so I don't understand why the molting has been staggered. Any ideas?

    this is not uncommon for the same age and breed of chicken to molt at different times.....it all varies w/ the bird itself. they will molt when theyre ready, and u cant rush mother nature....
    by the way...Welcome to BYC[​IMG]
