    I was wondering if my silkie rooster was molting. There are feathers all over his run and his feathers are also in the chickens next to his run. There are no balding spots he looks like he has more feathers then before..LOL...Could he be molting?

    If he's not looking bald, chances are he is in fact molting. If you can post a pic of him, we could surely tell you with more certainty.

    From those pics he looks just fine. Unless he's having his feathers picked at, that'd be molting.
