I have 2 chickens that molted for the first time last year, in the dead of winter. Almost lost one of them as it happened during the "worst cold snap of the season" here in Vermont. Why are these two molting at such an odd time? (I think it was January - February.) Is there any way to sort of trick them into molting now, when the temperatures are reasonable? Their coop mate, a RIR is nice and fairly bald at the moment and I just wish there was a way they could all go through this around the same time. Is this one of those things only Mother Nature can control?
