Poor Sherry molted so badly last year, I thought for sure she’d skip it this year. But nope. She just waited for it to get a little colder out. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Sharing for #moltmadnessmondays hosted by @newburyfarms! Even though that hashtag competition is already over, because Sherry waited until now. Anyone else still have chickens molting?

FINAL EDITION of this season’s #moltmadnessmondays! (And I realize, it’s Wednesday and I’m totally behind on posting🤦‍♀️) With the temps dropping 🌡❄️ and feathers flying, molt is the inevitable, horrifying, and slightly comical part of raising poultry 😳🙈🐓 Some come out only mildly affected, others look like complete train wrecks on the #hotmessexpress! 😱 Our beloved chickens, turkeys, ducks and guineas become sullen, embarrassed, and nearly nekked overnight...all to restore their feathered glory! 🌟 Thank you to everyone 👏👏who participated in #moltmadness and laughed along the way with us! 😂 Here are this week’s winners: • @a.d.ladnier @kristinethegr8 @wiepkje_kooistra_elzinga @duvallteresa @tarahharlin @rogerscreekfarm • So much fun hosting this hashtag!! Wishing everyone a wonderful autumn 🍂and winter ☃️season and speedy regrowth! ❤️❤️❤️ • • • #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig #poultry #pollo #moltingchicken #moult #ouch #prickly #poulet #chooks #backyardpoultry #ilovechickens #raisechickens #chickenkeeping #barnyardanimals #freerangechicken #pastureraised #farmanimals #farmlife #molting #molt #moultingseason #lifeonthefarm #newburyfarms via @newburyfarms Follow me @fred_sanche_931

Every year, Rosa has a pretty hard molt and every year she handles it like a little champ. I'm just glad that her and Nana 🍌 decided to start a little earlier this year. Those two molt the hardest and have been known to wait until around late Nov. time to get their molt on...usually just in time for the first snowfall! Playing along with Michelle over @newburyfarms for the last episode of #moltmadnessmondays . #chickensofinstagram #molting #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #urbanhens #backyardpoultrymag #raggamuffin #barredrock #Rosa

The Colonel is doing her best imitation of a turken with her hard moult. It's a race to see if those neck feathers will get here before the cold weather does. ... #moltmadnessmondays #abirdslife #chickensofig #chickensofinstagram #bantam #mountainlife #ColonelSassypants

Playing along with #moltmadnessmondays hosted by @newburyfarms. This picture i took last week. I never had a chicken who molted that bad like #Lola. Well the worst part is over now, new feathers are popping every where. Luckily just in time, temps are dropping at the moment. Absolutely not my favorite time of the year. #moltingseason #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #poultry #birds🐦 #poultryofinstagram #frizzlecochin #hensofinstagram #dailypic #instadaily #petsofinstagram #petsofig #pets #lovemychickens🐔🐓❤️🐔🐓❤️ #happychickens #fresheggsdaily🐓

Paparazzi: "Gaia! Gaia Stardust! What's up with your wing feathers? They seem a bit loose! Are you setting a new trend, Gaia Stardust?!" Gaia Stardust: 👀🔪👹👊💥 ... While she did certainly not be against setting trends, Gaia did feel that there be things you just do not shout about in public. Even when one be hardly the first to sport said trend... Still, there did be the comfort of knowing that she did qualify for final event of #moltmadnessmondays with @newburyfarms - at least she would be in sympathetic company there! 🐔 🍂 #wedontwanttotalkaboutit #funday #chickensofinstagram #pocket_family_member #pocket_pets #pocket_family #pocket_farms #dvärgkochin #pekinchicken #thepixiechicks #pocket_allnature #pocket_animal #ig_week #ig_week_scandinavia #ig_week_sweden #backyardchickens #ig_week_family #visomharhöns

I didn’t choose the molt life. The molt life chose me 👊🏼 Agnes is FINALLY getting some tiny baby feathers coming through on her back... it’s been so cold here at night and this poor girl had a completely bare back!! #moltmadnessmondays #molting #agnesthechicken #agnesjane #hen #sunnysidecoop #mychickencoop #backyardpoultrymag #backyardflock #raisechickens #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #henhouse #chickenpen #pnwchickens #wachickens #countrylife #lifewithchickens #spoiledchickens #hensofinstagram

Our poised, well-mannered, dignified Duchess be turning into a snappish tyrant! Her feathers have barely started falling out, but she be increasingly cause of other Pixie's feathers flying. Mind you, she may just be upset about going into moult and *still* being the only one to pay the rent! Noblesse oblige, Herta, noblesse oblige...

It’s #moltmadnessmondays hosted by the always entertaining Michelle @newburyfarms 😀 the turkeys have joined in the molting trend here at the farm and #spaceshipturkey momma wanted to show off her fluffy new neck feathers, they look just like a comfy turtleneck sweater and I’m sure they’ll keep her nice and warm this winter! 😀 ❤️🦃 Would @the_pixie_chicks @gemmaseggfarm @emshappyhens like to share today? #turkeysofinstagram #backyardturkeys #heritageturkey #farmlife #oregonfarm #homesteadlife #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside

My best lap girl Ruby still wants lap time despite going through a terrible molt and resembling a porcupine 😆 but I guess I was stepping over the line by daring to take this photo as she’s giving me some serious stink eye! 🤣🤣❤️🐔 Sharing for #moltmadnessmondays hosted by the fabulous Michelle @newburyfarms.

My pitiful, molting gals. I can only imagine the conversations these two have about all those missing tail feathers! 🤣 Sharing with Michelle @newburyfarms for #moltmadnessmondays .

🐔I is appalled! Who left dis feather jus lying here?! Scandalous!! 🙍Uhhh... that’s from you Pewpew. Actually, there’s a tornado of black feathers flying around the yard and a blanket of them lining the floor of your coop. All from you. You haven’t noticed? 🐔*looks at me dumbfounded* *runs over to her mirror* 🐔Cancel my appointments! • • Poor Pewpew. Second year in a row where she drops all of her feathers overnight. She’s avoiding me cuz she knows I want to pick her up and pick off all those loose feathers... they drive me crazy just hangin on by a thread! 😩 But seriously though.. she’s super depressed and has been standing under a tree staring at her reflection in the chickie mirror all day. So dramatic. (Swipe to see the molt in action>>>) #moltmadnessmondays @newburyfarms ❤️

Molting Marg wouldn't even look at me this morning. I have a sneaking suspicion that Vera, my buff, has taught her to "just face the fence and she'll go away".

This is Piper’s first full moult, she’s handling it really well and not letting it get her down. She’s also surprisingly tiny underneath all of that fluff!🐓💜 Sharing for #moltmadnessmondays hosted by @newburyfarms Would @fieldstonefarm_usa and @duvallteresa like to play along too! 😊 #moulting #lavenderpekin #bantam #chickens #chickensofinstagram #backyardchickens

Flops doesn't care to be a model for anything IG related. Of all my girls right now, she looks the worst. Her tail is one feather, her neck is half naked, and she looks like the grumpy cat. I chased her down to get this picture for #moltmadnessmondays. Playing along with Michelle @newburyfarms. #mondaysbelike #mondaymood

Mary Chicken would like everyone to know that it’s not easy to look beautiful while molting, but in her opinion she has nailed it 🙄❤️🐓 Playing along with @newburyfarms #moltmadnessmondays and feeling pretty glad that no one is going through a molt like Sherry did last year in which she looked like a plucked turkey...may have to dig that one out of the archives though 😂 Also, excuse the “molting” house in the background...new siding going on in a few weeks! 👏🏼

Sweet Henny Penny looks like a miserable pincushion right now. Nothing like a hard molt as the days/evenings get colder.

The classic bobtail look is one of my favorite fall molting styles for the ladies 🤣 but seriously this lady who has lost her tail is my newest momma hen who is still quite attentive to her now six week old chicks and has not kicked them out of the nest yet. I can just imagine how uncomfortable it must be for her going through a molt and still having four chicks wanting to sleep under her at night! 😬 She's such a good momma but I fully expect her to give the littles the boot soon! 😆👞🐥👊Sharing for #moltmadnessmondays a new hashie hosted by Michelle @newburyfarms.

Minnie's hard molt...the other morning I went into the coop to let everyone out for the day & I thought something had gotten one of the chickens overnight- feathers EVERYWHERE! Minnie definitely has some #moltmadnessmondays going on. She's usually a stunning fluffy emerald green, but today she is a skinny, half naked, one-wing-feather-left kind of girl. Soon she will be shiny & new! @newburyfarms
