this is my first winter and first time seeing these chickens molt, although its not their first winter since they are over a year old and are rescues :)

I was out of town over the holidays and had my roommate taking care of the girls while i was away, and one of my most active chickens is molting now, or is molted? and seems to have really shrunk and her comb is even smaller and looks dry? She almost looked like a different chicken! and even sounds different, she has a small little chirp and isnt her loud screetching self? shes still eating and drinking and still comes right up to me but i was just concerned if this is normal?

is it normal?
