Looks like the same to me. I remember their little feathers looking like that as chicks, but it surprised me on a hen.View attachment 1602937 View attachment 1602938 Hey this is the reason I popped on the board here tonight to post pictures of my beloved Buff named Winnie. I don’t want to hijack a thread but her neck looks like that too ! I thought it was too late in the season for a molt but I am no expert.

Again sorry if this is considered a hijack in the forum world.
