Hello, Wasn't sure which topic to post this under, but I'm wondering if my hens are going to go into their first molt? I have six hens, all around 15-16 months. Today, I noticed that most of them are beginning to thin out their feathers around their necks. Their combs and wattles also seem to be just a tiny bit paler than I am used to. No other symptoms, and their behavior and appetites are normal. I'm just curious, if this is a molt, what I should expect. Will they go completely bald? How long will it last? Will there be any type of discomfort or behavioral/eating changes for my girls during the process? How will it affect their egg-laying? Most importantly, I would like to know of any type of holistic things I can do to support them while they molt. Do they need extra protein, are their any supplements I should be giving them, basically anything I can do to keep their bodies strong and healthy during the process? Thankyou so much for any and all advice/suggestions!!
