Are your chickens looking a little bare right now? It’s likely the result of molt, a naturally occurring process in chickens from August through December.
In the molting process, chickens lose their feathers starting at the head and neck and working its way down the body. It can take 4-16 weeks for the molting process to be complete.
But fear not, there are options to help speed the process along. Products like, Nutrena’s NatureWise Feather Fixer can help your birds get through molt quicker.
Additionally, educating yourself on the process of molt will help you and your flock get through this transition period seamlessly.
