    Yesterday my Bella looked absolutely fine, with the exception of a few missing back feathers; courtesy of my roo. She even laid a beautiful large egg yesterday morning.
    Today she decided to molt. She looks so pitiful, I just had to share! [​IMG]

    Bella, which way did the tornado go?

    She realized I had a camera and she was out of there!

    She looks like she has been run through a knot hole backwards...

    Poor mama!

    Quote:She's a LF dark brahma. Bella is one of my best layers. An egg every day, rarely skipping a day. Except when she's molting of course.
