    LOL JUST KIDDING.

    Somebody needs to finish her molt before she is looks even WORSE. She has so many pinfeathers it feels like a porcupine when you pick her up.

    Oh....also.....she is a COCHIN. Can you tell? Poor bird......

    My eyes are burning! You know, you broke a cardinal rule! You should never post pics of a hen in her time of shame. Bad, Janelle! LOL.

    But but but.....its so funny. Poor thing looks HORRIBLE. She tried going broody recently...and actually did really well....even hatched a chick out. But she was on a high nesting box, the chick fell out and 2 other broody hens STOLE it. LOL. She gave up being broody after that. Or maybe she realized she didn't have enough feathers to keep a chick warm and put it up for adoption. [​IMG]

    Cute pic, even if you did break the cardinal BYC rule.

    I'm raising turkens AND my adult brahmas are molting, so I'm getting used to seeing naked chickens. [​IMG]

    All my pet birds are moulting. Oscar my Amazon parrot is always so embarrassed for anybody to see his pinfeathers. He hides behind his rope toy and pouts if I try to look at him. I have one cockatiel who dissects fallen feathers with the intensity of a forensic pathologist. He'll stand on the feathered end and with incredible dexterity strip the waxy root layer by layer. Years ago I had a stray banty rooster who liked to entice the ladies with a feather. He'd snatch a fallen feather and throw it in the air as part of his courtship dance.
