    I have a Bared Rock who is 21 months old and her feathers are starting to turn yellow. She is in good shape and is keeping the rest in line(Rooster also). Was wondering if this is a normal phase for her.

    Also while I'm here I was wondering if 22 degrees is too cold to let them out of the coop.

    Thanks penquin

    When chickens with white on them go outside, the sun turns their feathers yellow. So yes its normal.

    As long as they want to go outside, let them out.
