we have 7 chickens and 3 are Plymouth rocks. One seems to be loosing feathers and looking rough down to one tail feather. The others are nice and plump. Could this be a 9 month molt? Just curious why it is only one bird. They are 10 months old. I attached some pictures so you can see our one girl next to the others
