I'm full of questions tonight...I understand that there is no way to know how long a hen/chicken will molt, but is there any way to tell when a hen is done molting? I have a Black Tailed White Japanese Bantam that has stopped laying eggs (for about a week and a half now) due to a supposed molting...I've seen her feathers here and there in the coop...but I was wondering if there is any way that I can tell when she might be done molting. I'm anxious for her to start laying again. She was only laying eggs for about a month before she starting molting and stopped laying. Also, is there any estimated age when a hen will have her first molting (say a month or two after she starts laying)?
