    I have a few pictures of one of my hens that might be starting a molt but I haven't noticed a lot of feathers missing off of her. She is not laying eggs and it looks like she might be getting new feathers but only on her tail and wings. Can someone tell me if it looks like she might be molting? [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG]
