My Buckeye, Ruby, is having a tough time with her molt. She will not touch her feed, so only eats when they get free range time, which is not so much now that the days are getting shorter. She is drinking... excessively so, and is only pooping water. I’ve not seen this with a molt before. Could there be something else going on? She is perky and active when I let them out of the run after work, but I’ll find out this weekend how she’s doing during the day. Also, she’s been going to bed early, but she did rally and come out to free range, even after she went to bed. The litter under her roost is getting wet and I keep having to take some out. Advice? Do any of your hens do this during molt?
