Please know I really appreciate all your advice and take it all onboard.They do better with the cold than heat. Heat kills really quickly. What makes you think Agatha can't handle the cold? Chickens moult when it starts getting cold & most do ok. If her eggs are thin shelled that is a separate matter that needs addressing with calcium. Others on here have good ideas about that.
One thing to consider [& I don't want to worry you] is sometimes a tribe will force a sick chicken out ~ especially if they consider her a threat to the rest. Has Agatha had a vet check? I'd consider it. Electrolytes & extra vitamins may be in order while she rebuilds her strength.
Vets are incredibly expensive here and i have not heard of a vet advised too me from another vet that I made contact with twice by leaving a message and texting
I've yet to find a vet with a good reputation that doesn't overcharge.
