Ok - I just discovered yesterday that my husband has been feeding WAY too much scratch to the girls. What he insists was "just a handful now and then" was actually more like a handful for each girl, twice a day! Bad husband! Anyway, I wonder if this is connected to another little mystery I have had lately, which is that my NHR, who is 5, has been going through a veeeery slow molt recently. It certainly isn't the time of year for that, and I haven't been able to figure out why. Do you think that is the reason?
