    My little 2 year old black sex-link decide to tear out all her feathers after I changed from shavings to straw. All the girls have been treated for mites recently so I retreated her just in case. It is getting down to freezing at night should I be worried? Is this normal for them to do this? Should I change the bedding back? I was trying to save some $$ but I hate to see her suffer.
