Recently a friend gave me her 4 year old Ameracauna hen. I am in the process of building new coop for her and three hens who came with her. Last night I found her tightly wrapped in a blanket on top of her cage. She had wrapped herself in it. Tonight, same thing, tightly wrapped right before sundown. I unwrapped her. She seemed fine. I put her down and she walked around fine and ate greens well. Has anyone who has had this breed (I never have had Ameracaunas before now), witnessed a desire in them to have light fabric around their bodies at night? I'm amazed at how tightly she cocooned herself into the sheet. Could she be too cold? She had been molting when I first acquired her, but she looks like she is done molting. All comments will be appreciated. I'm a bit concerned.
