Hello,
I am a relatively new, young chicken owner. Today I noticed that some of my chickens, 3 out of 4, seem to have some odd feathering. They are all behaving as normal, but it seems like they are about to moult, even though I dont think it is mouting season. They are roughly 32 weeks old. We have just had a relatively cold spell here, I am wondering if it has anything to do with it. If anyone knows what it could be, advice will be greatly appreciated, I am a bit worried!

Hi, thanks for the reply. I was worried about the feathers at the upper leg area, some seem to be sticking out. Being a first time chicken owner, and having only had them a few months, there are some things that sometimes worry me despite my research. Thank you. Your response has greatly reassured me!
