    One of my chickens seems to be losing all of her feathers suddenly. I believe it may be the same rhode island red that was trying to brood last week. she doesnt seem to be hurting. I picked her up and looked her over and she didnt seem to mind and she is acting normal but all of her feathers are falling out. Please Help!

    Sounds like maybe she's molting. Mine usually do that when they get tired of being broody. [​IMG]
