I have done searches and not coming up with much information so I thought I would post. I have a 16 month old hen who has been loosing feathers. I came home today to find feathers everywhere and almost her entire tail is GONE! All but 1 feather. I thought there was an attack. Is it normal for this age to molt? Is it true that this is the time of year for Molting? Fall? Would it happen so fast that the whole tail would be gone in an afternoon? I have never been through molting yet so this is all new to me. Thanks for any info you may have!
