    I am guessing she is molting, but I have only had one other hen molt and she did not look like this..

    Yep, looks like it. I just had a hen drop nearly every feather in a matter of a few days, she's regrowing them normally now, but literally overnight it looked like someone had taken a plucker to her....never seen anything like it before.
