Greetings! I need some insight from the more experienced folks here..... Here are the details of our flock.... Type - (6) New Hampshire hens Age - 13 months Issues (?) It appears that the ladies are beggining to moult. This would be their first moult since they got their adult feathers last summer. There is some feather loss and general scruffiness appearing on most of them. The feather is appearing on the chest first. No apparent parasites or appearance of illness or injuries. No excessive aggressiveness is observed. Appetite and drinking is normal. They have plentiful food and water available at all times, including when free-ranging. This week we have seen some egg laying anomolies 1 wind egg A shell-less egg Laying pattern change (from 5 - 6 a day to 2 - 4 a day) Does this all indicate the beggining of a moult? If not.... any insight? This is our first year with chickens and we want to ensure we take the correct measures regardless of the situation...... Thanks in advance for any information!
