Did you know?
YOUR HENS may be moulting now. It can be worrying when their feathers start falling out, and some chickens end up almost bald. However, it is a normal process and the feathers will grow back. Changing their feathers is stressful for chickens, though, and the hens will stop laying. Make sure your chickens eat plenty of good food, without too many treats and always have fresh water available for them. You could also give them a seaweed supplement to help their feathers grow. When the first little feathers start appearing, your chickens may feel rather sore (probably like your mouth does when a new tooth is coming through). Even the friendliest ones may not want to be touched at this time. Wait until they’re fluffy again and they will be back
for cuddles as usual.
