what exactly does a chicken who is molting look like. ours have slowed way down in egg produstion. but they mostly have their feathers, except the ones who get rode a lot. also it has been very hot, is the heat doing it to them?

Usually, feathers all over the place and a motley looking bird! And then they grow a new "coat". If you could see my Buff Brahma bantams, and the feathers on the floor of their pen!!!! You would not be asking! CJR
