The Tail-less Easter Egger

Original_Caughey-Melissa-cuddles-in-coop1 Tail-less easter egger

So something really weird happened to this cutie pie, Cuddles, one of our Easter Eggers.  This past spring she turned one and went through her very first fall molt. She’ll be two in June. She lost all of her feathers and looked really mangy but finally come this January her molt was complete. She looks absolutely gorgeous, fluffy and silky. But the strange thing is that her tail never grew back in.  We now have a tail-less Easter Egger in the coop.
