    Hi!

    I'm new to this! My chickens are moulting, one has a pale crown which i know can be a sign of illness, or is it just the moult? She seems fine, eating etc!

    Thanks!

    Usually during a molt the crown does turn pale. She is on her egg laying break. After the molt, she'll return to normal and it will be red again.

    For the molt you need to give her the wet mash probiotic recipe with vit E and B complex
