How often do chickens molt??
So far, once mine have gotten in their adult feathers it has been once a year or once every two years...
The birds can go through several molts their first year. Sometimes you may notice feathers and sometimes you may not if they are going through a light molt. After their first year they generally molt once a year.
It's meant to be once a year.
Mine usually molt towards the end of summer.
