The hens themselves are looking a bit ratty right now, as they are going through their fall molt. From all the feathers seen in the bottom of the run, it looks like the fox got in and ate a few hens! But, no, the are just losing their old feathers and getting new ones. You can see the new pin feathers on Louise's neck (see is the light red hen).
Finally, the fourth photo shows one of the beds where a flat leafed parsely went to seed right before the hurricane. It looks like I will have a carpet of parsley this winter!
