    Keeper of the hens

    Hey,

    I've replied to a few emails and seen a few posts on the forum recently about the feathers in the coop - people have been worried that a predator has attacked the big girls (i know i've thought it a few times when i've seen all the feathers, especially when the chickens can't be seen on the cam) and i just wanted to say thank you for your concern.

    At the moment Penny is going through her moult (she has a MASSIVE (and quite disgusting) bare patch on her back where her new feathers will shortly be growing through) and so she is losing feathers left right and centre...that is the reason why the coop floor is covered in black feathers...the girls haven't been attacked or anything, Penny is just going bald :D

    Just thought i should make a proper post about it, as it might stop people from worrying :)

    Thanks again for keeping an eye on the chucks,
    Red

    Thanks Red :) I kind of like Penny's new hairdo - much easier to tell her from Tilly.
