I beought her in because our temps are in the teens and dropping to single digits. Her comb is red, she is eating and drinking. Isnt it late for her to be molting?

She's like a yr and a half. They just get fed from a big feeder, they have access at all times. I live in PA

Sorry what do I feed. They get typical feed but i've bumped up the protein, they have some corn mixed in and they get their mealworms daily as a treat. They've been wormed a couple of weeks ago so I don't think it's anything like that

Sounds like she is molting......Up the feed to a grower ration......Cut out the Corn.....

Thank you, can you believe my girls have never really gone through molting? Well not like this anyway....2 lost a few feathers and that was it but that was back in the beginning of Nov. I've had them almost 2 years. I thought this was her molting but it seems so late. Although our weather has been so crazy . Thank you for taking the time to help me out!
