Cream Legbar vs Skyline? in Chickens, Eggs and Hatching Posted August 10, 2021 Hello! Skylines are such pretty birds. Birds which are hatched late in the year, by which I mean from aroun the end of May onwards don't moult in in the first winter. Your girls will moult this year, and will propbably stop laying while they are moulting. IU've only ad a few hybrids, but I found that they tended to lose loads of ferathers all in one go, looking very oven ready, but the pure breeds tend to moult a bit at a time. ybrids as thers coming through at once. Regardless of whether they are hybrid or pure breds, I've found that some girls moult towards the end of the summer and others wait umtil the weather is awful and then do it.
