A few of my girls have started molting. Is there anything I need to be doing for them or just let them take care of it themselves.

They should be fine on their own. To help them molt, though, you can give them high protein foods. Scrambled eggs and wet cat food are great for molting birds. Molting is stressful, so giving probiotics and electrolytes wouldn't hurt, either.

They don't need any help. Sometimes I will give them extra protein (mealworms or crickets). I have some really ugly chickens right now, too, but they will be beautiful again in a week or so!
