She will be ok at 29. I had a hen molt in January, and it was in the teens below zero. She survived it just fine.Im in Derry NH and my girl is molting too. First thought the new teenage boys were at her, which they are, but shes lost soooo much, tail included, i know its a molt. He stepsister finished her molt a month ago. Boy they look so sad and unhealthy when molting, i was surprised. But the sister looks fabulous now and seems to feel good. I would just keep them protected from the cold-----29 tonight!!!!!!
My first hen of 3 started to molt a week ago.I'm in southern New Hampshire. Is it late for my chickens to be molting?
