I have 2 hens that are molting. They were both born last March, so they are about 1 yrs old. Its spring here in Upstate NY. Ive never had a molt at this time of the year or this young. Started with the head feathers, and is working its way down. One is still laying and the one that is molting harder isn't. We had a run of lice/mites a few months ago, but they have been cleared of all bugs for at least 8 weeks. She looks worse now, this photo was taken 10 days ago.
