Hello, Its been a while since Ive been on the forums and not sure this is a true emergency but my chicken could die so.... I have an Olive egger that literally lost most of its feathers to molt in like two days. This would not normally be a problem but Im in MA and its been below freezing for the last several days. Its currently 25F. She is shivering. I have never seen a chicken shiver before. I fed her some scratch and mealworms. Is there anything I can do? This may sound dumb but should I bring her in for a little or will she have too hard a time acclimating when I put her back out or could I even put a little sweater on her or something just for a day or two. Don't flame me for the dumb questions please. Im not a total newbie but just a new problem for me. Thanks all
Ill try to post She's obviously the Olive egger in the middle.a picture but it doesn't really show the extent of her molt but she probably lost 80% of her feathers, she is at least half the size she is normally.
