    when do chickens molt. I got a hen over the summer and she had spots in her feathers that looked like they had been shaved. it's been 6 months now and they still look the same way. when chickens molt do they lose most of their feathers at once or just a few here and there. thanks for any help.

    She might have mites or fleas. Can you post a picture?
