I have an 11 month old BROWN-RED Americauna (her name is Marigold) that has muffs and a beard (always very big and full) she is healthy and am pretty sure is not molting.
Anyway.. I was letting my girls free rang and I picked up Marigold and ALL of her beard and a lot but not not all of her muff fluff is gone!! All of her other feathers are fine. It is not bloody or anything like that.
I don't know how that could be pecking.
WHAT DO YOU THINK??
