    She's like a yr and a half. They just get fed from a big feeder, they have access at all times. I live in PA

    Sorry what do I feed. They get typical feed but i've bumped up the protein, they have some corn mixed in and they get their mealworms daily as a treat. They've been wormed a couple of weeks ago so I don't think it's anything like that

    Sounds like she is molting......Up the feed to a grower ration......Cut out the Corn.....


    Cheers!

    Thank you, can you believe my girls have never really gone through molting? Well not like this anyway....2 lost a few feathers and that was it but that was back in the beginning of Nov. I've had them almost 2 years. I thought this was her molting but it seems so late. Although our weather has been so crazy . Thank you for taking the time to help me out!
