Hi I am a new member. In May I got 6 bantam pullets, various breeds. After quarantine, I just added three more pullets, they are establishing the new pecking order and so far, so good. I have a few questions: My chickens just started molting, one in particular has lost a lot of feathers. Since I live in Wisconsin and it gets cold here, should I worry about her getting too cold outside? Should I assume that she will come in on her own if she is too cold? I have a base heater for the waterer. I am nervous to plug it in, is this thing a fire hazard? My chickens are not really laying much at all right now, should I assume this is because of the combination of new chickens, molting and shorter days?
