    Hello All, my Henrietta, a two year old barred rock, shed her feathers around her neck in spring. I assumed it was the start of her first molt. Four+ months later there are a few pinfeathers but mostly the neck is still bare. The rest of her went through a heavy molt late this summer. She eats well, lays and is active. In other words she looks and acts fine except for her bare neck. Anybody with similar experience? Any ideas on what to do? Any input is greatly appreciated.
