My 18 month old hen (although i refer to him as "HE") named Fred just started molting a couple weeks ago. now he is starting to look like a raw chicken with pins sticking out! however, he seems to have pain as he walks, he crouches and has his legs kinda out to the sides, and more waddles like a duck than walks like a chicken. i wanna make sure hes ok. is this just pain from the new feathers poking through? is there something else wrong with him? I wanna make sure. it also seems to hurt him when i hold him, which i did a couple days ago, and he jumped out of my arms and realized there have to be feathers on his wings to fly.
