Hens that moult late

Your Chickens - - Charlotte's Chickens -

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!
