what does it mean for a chicken to molt? what does it do to them?
Check this link.
so when will this happen to the will it for sure happen
It depends when they hatched. Most will begin their first adult molt between 12 and 18 months. But I've had some pullets go through a minor molt at 9 months.
You'll know when it's happening. They will quit laying and it will look like a pillow exploded in your yard.
does it make them look better or worse?
Quote:Worse while they molt, better after.
will they look pretty again after its all done
A few of my new ones started molting and there are a lot of feathers on the ground
