Cheryl, one of my older birds moulted recently. I thought that there was something seriously wrong with her and was going to put her down. I told my Husband (he loves this gal, her name is Isabelle and she loves him too). I had never seen a chicken moult, but I hear it is quite common. Does your bird look anything like the one below, these are some pretty intensive and strange pictures. Have that beautiful, most wonderful day, love our life, health wishes. Cindi
This is what she looked like when her feathers were mostly grown back. She still looks a little shabby, but you can see those feathers are growing back. I should get another pic today and put it in this thread to show how she looks now, quite pretty, with nice new feathers all over, almost looks normal, smiling.
