How long will a chicken molt
Under natural circumstances a chicken will molt for 14 to 16 weeks during the late summer or early fall. The more prolific layers will start their molt early and molt very slowly. This is why some birds will look unthrifty for a time while this is taking place. For more information on molting and many other chicken questions see Guide to Raising Chickens.
