Please post some pics of your birds that are molting.... Thanks!
I wish I could since a bunch of mine are in all stages. Dh is on a hunting trip to CO and took the camera. I have a slw hen that looks positively pre-plucked right now, she's even lost all the feathers on her drumsticks and has big bare patches on her breast as well as a mostly bare back and no tail feathers at all. She's the worst one right now, but all the 18 month and up hens look pretty raggedy. I have two exceptions though, a BO and an EE that were broody toward the end of August and molted at the same time--I liked that, multi tasking is a good thing!!
What about everyone else?????
id like to see some pics too!! my birds are young and haven't molted yet...
