That is not entirely out of the question but it is a big odd for the molting to be just located in that area. I'd worry first of mites or something along those lines. Its possible its just molting just seems a little "off" to me.
12 months old.....or closer to 24 months old?1 year old hens and was told that one was molting. As I’ve done some more research I’m not as convinced it’s molting and am wondering what others think?
