    I am not trying to be cute but chickens molt only just as long as is required to produce a new wardrobe. Some years it may be just a few weeks and other years a particular chicken may require months.

    Why do you ask?

    I have two that are taking a lot of time (a few weeks) while others seem to be already done with it. They all live in the same conditions, so I agree with above, must be proper to each chicken!
