In animals, it is molting. Chickens generally stop laying eggs when their moulting begins and recommence laying when their new feathers have re-grown. Molting can involve shedding the epidermis (skin), pelage (hair, feathers, fur, wool), or other external layer. In some groups, other body parts may be shed, for example, wings in some insects or the entire exoskeleton in arthropods.
