Yesterday I went to lock up the chickens. I gathered eggs, filled the feeder, and started checking on birds. George my Rhode Island Red was bleeding a little bit from a starting to grow in feather that had broken off (at the base) from a over eager rooster. Then I glance under the roosts and saw feathers red everywhere. George being one of my two red birds (the other is Red and he has a different shade) got checked offer.

It looks like she is molting in the middle of winter (picture eye rolling). So because of that and the bleeding, she moved inside with me and is living in a bird cage. I'll give her at least a couple days to grow back some feathers and for her back to heal up. Pictures coming soon.
