Molting Chickens

Last fall my chickens weren't old enough to go through a molt, but this year my 6 girls are getting hit hard.  No eggs!  Here's a couple of pictures of the girls going through their first fall molt.  We are hoping this phase ends soon so they will start laying again.


 A good article about the molt phase can be found here:

This article claims that molting can last between 4 to 12 weeks or more.
