Hello everyone, I just had a question about one of my little ladies. She hatched 8 chicks almost 3 weeks ago and they are all doing well. However, i noticed that when i went out to feed mama and babies today that she seems to be loosing quite a few feathers. She is eating and drinking normally with no signs of distress or illness. Is it normal for hens to go through a sort of "molt" after the go broody and hatch chicks? I'm a bit of a worry wart when it comes to taking care of my chickens so i just want to make sure that she's alright. She is currently eating starter crumble along with her chicks...in case that makes a difference.
