    I have a 16 month old EE who molted this summer. A couple weeks ago what I thought was all of her feathers grew back in and she starting laying again. The last two days it seems like we're going through round two. She stopped laying and it looks like a chicken exploded in our yard. Feathers everywhere. Does this sound normal? I'm worried because it's getting cold her in MA. I've added some BOSS back to her diet. Any info is appreciated. This is my first molt!

    Check her thoroughly for mites and lice.

    She's clean as a whistle. I did see some pin feathers poking through. Not as many coming in as are falling out though.
