She looks healthy to me. Most molting hens look this bad, or worse. You might notice her temperament change (she'll probably get more submissive, and be a little less active), but as long as she acts normal otherwise, she's fine.
They look like hell and they don't feel good either.
Upping the protein helps.
thank you... this is the first moulting. i have heard of it but have never seen it until NOW.. damb she looks bad.... have had her for over a year and its the first one... i was wondering why i wasnt getting eggs lately...... THANK you.........
The molt can be anytime but normally the second autumn and every year thereafter.
It takes a lot of protein to make feathers and they take that time to give the reproductive tract a rest and makeover.
