When do chicks begin their first moult? My older girls are 10 weeks and, judging by the number of feathers in the coop and pen, I'd say they were beginning to moult. Is that early? A few of them are getting their wattles and their combs are turning red. Do they start to lay after the first moult?

I'm still learning about chickens, so I'd appreciate any input.
