Please forgive me. I did a search and didn't find enough info to make me feel better. If you have a link please share it with me. I am quite worried about Selena, our bantam cochin. I noticed she missed a day of egg laying day before yesterday.(she laid yesterday) I konw thats not a big deal its just that she lays everyday without fail. I decided to pay close attention to her just in case. I saw her in the nesting box off and on all day. Yesterday she went to bed (roost) several hours before everyone else. She usually is not one that I can pick up or even touch. This morning instead of being the first one out of the coop she stayed in bed. I was able to pet her. Not like her at all. I spent all day in town. She was in the nesting box at 10 am and still at 330 pm. I reached in and picked her up after petting her for a few minutes. She just made a cooing noise. When I slid my hand under her I noticed she is missing tons of feathers from her breast area. Is this molting? She was hatched the end of Feb. What else should I look for and is there something thAt I should be doing for her? Thank you. Sorry this is so long.
