    Hey everyone, new owner of 6 hens just wondering if this just mt Ameracauna molting or if it something else. It has been worrying me lately and I just want to be safe rather than sorry. Thank you so much for your feedback!!!

    It's not a very good picture but I would guess she was molting. Just to be sure did you check for mites?
