Moulting.

One of our chickens is having a particularly severe Autumn moult this year. Her new feathers are just growing through and she looks very pitiful indeed. It’s not a good look. Luckily she’s easily cheered up with a big handful of corn.

  1. Oh my! Same with me when some years ago I cut my hair and then had to wait until it had grown longer again! Pitiful is the word….poor chick!

  2. Poor little thing – just as the weather gets a bit colder too; the kids will have to think about making her a little chicken cardigan! 🙂

  3. Oh dear, feathers flying! My friend made her rescue chickens some jumpers, but be sure to make them on the “looks too small” side- they stretched so much the poor hens were tripping over them!
