    At what age do chickens go into their first molt?
    I have a pullete that was hatched May/June and she is missing a few tail feathers an I seen a photo of a hen in molt an her tail looked just like my pullet's..

    Definitely possible. My girls were a 1st of July hatch and molted their 1st October.
