To molt or not to molt that is the question

The last few months seemed to be difficult ones for one of our hens, she was losing feathers, lots of them, everyday. At first we weren't sure what was going on, the other two looked fine, we didn't know if she was sick or being bullied by the other two, but something was definitely going on. After some research we realized molting was the answer. Although it's a natural process it just didn't seem it....but our girl got through it and looks great now. She even started laying again, even though the eggs are tiny she seems to be back to her old self again!
