I have 5 bantam leghorns about 8 or 9 months old. I've been noticing more and more feathers on the ground in their pin and at first thought one or so would be molting but from what I've read they look like they are going bald when the molt and none of them look like that. I was wandering if the weather, being so hot, makes them shed a few feathers. Also, my wife and I have noticed they seem to have grown a bit since we got them. I don't know when chickens stop growing or anything but do they lose feathers when they grow? Thanks P.S And is there a list or a website that gives what behavior a chicken does and what they mean?
