    You want them to molt. Most drastic would be not to feed them for 3 days in a row. Just give them water. The feathers would start to drop then you start feeding them slowly. startng with 1 spoonfool until you go to regular amt of food once the feathers starts dropping. They need nutrients for them to be 100% healthy. When you reduce the nutrient intake, they shed feathers first because other parts of their body need the nutrients to survive.

    Here in the Philippines, aside from the change in weather, which is a sign for the start of molting season to begin, stress and sudden increase or decrease in the protein level in some roosters can cause them to molt.

    what I sometime do is, I spar them, then put them in black out pens for a couple of week or so, while adding more protein pellets in their diet and the birds start to drop their feathers.

    Re: FORCE MOLTING

    This is very interesting. What are the negative side effects of a forced molt? Is this something that a lot of cockers do before the fighting season in the PI
