Could a 9 month old hen be molting? Would a hen's comb and wattles look very drab colored while molting? I have a Black Star hen that doesn't look well. Her feathers around her neck look very shabby looking and her comb and wattles are not a nice bright red like the rest of them. She looks like she is eating ok. Also, she is very flighty, runs away from me instead of squatting. It's so cold out that I can't stand around observing her for very long..... Any ideas?
