ok my question is this Ihave 12 hens and 1 rooster. It is now around -5 or under most days here.lots of snow which they are afraid of. they do go in it, in their pen to get feed and water. My question is, is it not too cold for them to start molting they are not even a year old yet march and april is when they will be a year. they are not bald but I can see bare spots which are covered by pin feathers. some of then look old around their faces because of the white pin feathers coming in.
