    OMG! I am looking through these pics with my fiance (we got our first chickens 4 months ago) and he is making the funniest comments about the molting chickens!

    " Those bony wing feathers are nasty, they remind me of a fish carcass or something"
    " HOW LONG DOES THIS LAST???"
    " Um.... looks like I'll be staying inside for a few weeks"

    seriously there's just nothing that makes this ok... why do they DO this? you'd think there'd be some limiting factor, like say, 30% of feathers at a time.
    someone needs to knit that girl a sweater!
    or at least get her some sunblock!
    wow, poor thing!
