We have 3, 18mo hens (born June 2019), 3 pullets from the hens (born May 2020). I understand (from reading on here) that pullets don't molt first year. Of our hens, 1 (brahma) went broody out of nowhere, this past August, for about 2 weeks, then started molting (apparently), for about a solid month (give or take a couple weeks)--i thought that was early for molt--and of course worried that she was having a health crisis instead--but now she looks beautifully fully feathered. However, the other 2 haven't molted whatsoever. I don't know why I feel like I have to torture you all with asking if that's normal and or could they molt still this season? We're in Colorado and having an obvious fall (colder temps, etc).
