Hi folks, Is it too early for hens to molt? I live in ABQ New Mexico, and this is my first year with a flock. I don't know many good chicken owners in the area, they are no help. My RIR is lookin nappy, she is just over 1 year old. Her head is mostly bald, and she's shedding feathers from all over. My game bird also lost all of her tail feathers one day, she is just younger than 1 year. I can post pictures. Behavior is normal, although she may not be 100%, she hasnt laid an egg for 3 weeks. I de-wormed for a second round last weekend (1st round Wazine, 2nd round Safeguard), she was suffering from roundworms when she stopped laying. My biggest concern is her comb. It's shrunken considerably, and is not it's usual vibrant red. Her droppings look normal. I treated for cocci after losing a bird 1 and a half months ago. Could she be suffering still, and need another treatment? My flock's overall health improved after a treatment of Sulmet.
