    I see one of my chickens is molting on the hip(sides) but her feathers are still in tact on majority of body,, and rest of chickens are ok...
    but one more has stated to show white on her sides as well today. It looks like it is fuzzy!!
    But tonight I noticed that one of the chickens went to peck the other that started to show these white fuzzy feathers...
    what is this from???
    what can i do to stop this?
