Here is Audrey on November 1
She is a Turken or Naked Neck chicken, but when she is molting she is naked all over in patches.
What a mess!
By November 18, you can see that Audrey has begun the (painful-looking) process of growing out new feathers.
Here is a graphic illustration of what is happening. The whole technical explanation that goes with it can be found on the Cornell University Bird Academy's page "Everything You Need to Know About Feathers." It's really worth your time to look at this beautifully illustrated article.
And here is Audrey today, January 14, in all her iridescent splendor.
