Hello all, I need a little reassurance here. My previously broody pullet was broody for the full 3 weeks, if not a little longer and just came out of that in the last 10 days or so. Now she's decided to lose all her feathers. Normally I wouldn't care but doesn't DECEMBER seem like a stupid time to get naked? She has big bald spots all over and there are feathers **everywhere**. I'm sure I can't stop this from happening but is it normal to molt after being broody? She didn't lose a single feather while broody but after it is like she exploded all over the yard and coop. She's going to need a sweater if she keeps this up. This doesn't seem like an evolutionarily intelligent behavior and it just doesn't make sense to me! Can you help?
