I am new to the world of chickens but after one year we are in love. Our one year old hen is losing feathers more and more everyday and has stopped laying. Its the beginning of Spring here in Northern Italy...almost everywhere I have read that moulting occurs in the Fall. So I am worried she has mites. She is eating well, social as usual and does not appear ill. Any one else have experience with chickens moulting in spring time?
