Can anyone tell me if it s normal for a hen to be molting after she's hatched some eggs?

Our broody hen hatched out 3 chicks a couple of weeks ago and now it seems like she is molting! Or gotten into a fight with herself and there are feathers everywhere! Is that normal?

Not really...it's just coincidentally the time of year for molting. I've never heard of or seen any of my broodies go into a molt from brooding eggs into chicks.

Ok. I just wanted to be sure. I was getting worried there.
