    My 2 year old chicken has been loosing a lot of feathers from the back and front. Last year around this time she lost feathers but not a lot so I don't know if it's normal. And also its like 39 degrees outside and I don't know if it's to cold for her to be outside because I feel like she can't keep her self warm since she lost most of her feathers. What should I do? Thanks

    Post a picture if you can. Many chickens are molting this time of year. One of my white silkies lost so many feathers a couple of weeks ago it looked like it had snowed it their coop.
