Chickens Stories from Our Nest

Inner Beauty

This week I had noticed some larger buff colored feathers in the run.  I did not notice anyone losing many feathers until today, when I noticed Oyster Cracker.  My most beautiful Buff Orpington, overnight lost most of her feathers!  The best part is, she doesn’t even seem to notice.  Still loving the camera, her curiosity could not stop her from posing.  She is midway through her molt and it she will probably become worse before her new feathers arrive.  It can take up to 9 weeks for her body to create new feathers.  Even mid-molt, I still think she is gorgeous.   Her spirit is infectious and her spunk can brighten any dreary day.  Today her inner beauty sparkled with less feathers eclipsing her brilliance.
