In the Brooder
- Aug 8, 2021
around a week ago my girl stopped laying eggs and it was a raise for concern until i came to conclusion it was the beginning of her molt. this is my first chicken i’ve owned and cared for so all of this is very new and small things are alarming to me. she hasn’t been pooping as much and when she does it a huge amount in one go and a couple smaller ones, the looks of her poop though are healthy and fine, just a large quantity. she also hasn’t been as active and loud as she usually is, her comb is smaller and paler than before but her crop seems to be normal so i don’t think it’s sour crop causing her behavior. is this just the beginning of a molt or should i be more concerned? her feathers are all still intact we haven’t had any feather loss yet to my knowledge. if pictures are needed i’ll provide them soon.
