    My Production Red seems to be going through a second molt. She lost some feathers and stopped laying about a month ago. Then she grew all her feathers back and started laying again. Now she has started dropping feathers again and stopped laying. She seems healthy and there are no signs of illness. Do birds sometimes have two molts in one season?
