Yours are probably going through their last baby molt which last until 5-7 months. Once they get their adult feathers they won't molt usually until the next fall after they are over a year old.What about 16 week old chickens? I've been finding quite a few feathers lying around but my girls don't look ratty or anything.
Welcome to BYC!Everything I've read about chickens molting, and from previous experience, they molt usually late summer or early fall. It is only June and my girls and their rooster are dropping feathers now. Is this something I should be concerned about?

How old are these birds?
Anything unusual and/or traumatic happen to the birds lately?
