I’m located in NC... I have two chickens that are molting terribly but I’m concerned it’s too late for a molt. Does this look normal? This is only one of the effected birds.

Ok thanks a lot. I’ll grab her some vitamins today and give her some extra protein as well 🥩 (not literally a t-bone, was thinking more like some eggs or mealworms lol) 😝

I’m in Canada and still have a few molting - it’s funny how they all molt differently and how some lose ALL of their feathers and some only lose a few! You can really see how odd a chicken would look if it didn’t have any feathers :lol: Looks totally normal and nothing to be worried about!
