Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

The Chickies Are Molting!

It is fall and the girls are molting.  I chuckle when I see them scratching around the yard leaving feathers in their wake.  At times the coop looks like the aftermath of a pillow fight! 

Not only are they quite mangy-looking with all the white patches, but they lose their tails too!  The chicken on the left has a little nub compared to the chicken on the right whose has a complete tail because her molt hasn't started yet.  

And here's a close-up of their new feathers coming in.  They are so little and cute!
