Poor Toek is molting!

My chicken is molting for the second time.  Her feathers are all over the coop area!

This picture has a little patch of sunshine on her back, but you can compare the two tails and see Toek doesn't have much of hers left!
The beautiful gold bird is Spot.  She is the one whose health we have been worried about.  She looks big in this picture, but her tail is about half the length and volume it should be, and she weighs practically nothing under all those pretty feathers.
I don't know how these chickens turned into pets instead of little egg factories. :-/
