    I dont know if this is in the right place or not...sorry if it aint. I have 4 rhode island red hens...had since babies...pets now had them four or five years.
    Something strange is happening to one of them. SHE IS NOT MOLTING....her feathers are changing colors...she is now speckled! Black, white, feathers everywhere fully covered...idk whats going on with her. The others are fine as can be got them same place, same time can anyone answer this? Dad has had chickens his whole life and he says he has never seen anything like it. Appreciate some help. She lays nice large brown eggs lol.
