My hens are fully feathered and started laying about 2 weeks ago. It has been extremely cold here and we have about 2 feet of snow in the chicken yard. My husband keeps clearing a path for them. I notices a couple of the have black spots on their combs (not raised think it might be frost bite but not sure) and one of the has feather loss all the way to her skin just in front of her tale feathers on her back. I have NO IDEA what is going on. Is it to early for them to have their first molts??? My Mother in law is having the same problem with her hen's ( she has raised chickens for 20 years and says its to early for them to molt).Could it be the extreme cold??? What do I do need help with this!
