In the Brooder
- Sep 19, 2012
About 2 weeks ago my EE got broody, I put her in a broody cage for a few days and then put her back with the other hens. A few days ago I went out to the chicken pen and thought someone had plucked one of my girls! There were feathers everywhere. It is the same hen that got broody. She seems fine, but she is losing feathers. I would guess she is molting. Do they do that in the winter? Is there anything I can do to keep her from losing feathers? Is there a certain feed I should give her? Will she get to cold now that winter is here? I am in Georgia, so it isn't freezing or snowing but it is still cold. Any answers would be great!
