    So, its late october and my barred rocks chickens(2 years) haven't molted yet. Just wondering if this is normal, or should i be worried? I will greatly appreciate any answer!! [​IMG]

    Some chickens molt like they exploded, others are much more subtle. I've never had a really bad molt in any of my chickens, the worse has been a missing tail or bald neck, and that's been rare.
