    With my chickies!
    So I read in a farm store website, " Some chickens molt so slowly and gradually that you barely notice. Others throw off all their feathers at once and are half naked for a couple of months." So I was wondering where my "wishlist" chickens are in on that scale. If you could tell me what the molting habits of Orpingtons, Wyandottes, Brahmas, and Ameraucanas that would be great! Thanks!
