Hens that moult late
Most hens have now finished moulting and are looking pretty good. One or two have had very late moults. Of my two ex-caged hens, one went through her moult and is laying again, while the other is having a dramatic moult – she looks like a rescue hen newly released from her cage! They say that hens who moult late are the best layers but I can’t really back that up, especially as if an early moulter goes straight back to laying!
