After the feather pulling problem, months ago, the girls are finally getting feathers back in. I know they may molt soon but am not sure if the new feathers would fall out or if they would keep them. It would be so nice to see the girls with a complete set of feathers again. Pepper has had a bare bottom all summer but at last her feathers are coming back.
Dotty’s head feathers are coming in but her neck is still bare, although there is an odd feather coming.
Bluebell is still missing neck feathers and there doesn’t seem to be any sign of them coming in yet. Her missing feathers are less noticeable though.
Amber is missing the most feathers out of the two little girls. The little girls were only hatched late last summer so I doubt they would molt this year. They only started laying eggs at the end of May. This may mean that Amber will look like this for a long time which is a shame. Amber is also missing the top round part of her comb from when she was pecked.
Honey is missing a few feathers but not as many as Amber.
Honey has a complete comb and is only missing a few feathers around her face. Amber, behind Honey, is missing some feathers from her neck.
I am not looking forward to the first molt but I am so looking forward to having my girls fully feathered again.
