Thread Starter 

Any have ideas how to make one without knitting?  I don't know how to knit and I have a very cold chicken right now.   Anyone have any ideas?

Why is she colder than the rest?

What breed?

What is your temperature?

 

There are saddles you can buy for hens to prevent rooster damage which may help keep a bird warmer.

She is smaller and molting.   Right now our temps are in the teens and twenties.    She is a Easter Eggers.    The others are doing pretty well but she has been shivering.   I think it is just all the feathers that haven't grown in yet.   Where would I find a saddle?  At a farm store?  We are colder than usual.  It will warm some later this week but she is very very cold.   When you hold her, she is shivering.

Google it.

 

Could she be shivering because she's paranoid or are there big bare patches on her body?

I've had birds molt in January and they survived.

I googled it and found a whole bunch on Ebay.
