Hi I am glad to be a new member of this group. I hope ya'll can help me! I have had a lot of chickens in my life time but I had to get rid of all of my chickens because the doctors kept thinking I had pneumonia and sent me to a lung doctor. The doctor said I was allergic to the feathers and poop. I know this is going to sound crazy but exactly one month after selling all of my chickens I had one (1) stray chicken come to my house in October 2013. I have a 6 ft fence around the entire property except the drive way which is the only one on my road. None of my neighbors have chickens. Well to make a long story short I let her stay here and she thinks she is a dog. She did not start laying until early this year she is young. Well it is now November and she is molting. I live in Wyoming and it is starting to get cold. I have never had a chicken molt this late in the year. What do I do? She has free range and goes in the barn at night and sleeps on top of the gate.I have wormed her and she gets laying pellets, scratch, oyster shells and grit when the ground is frozen. I also give her a few mill worms daily. She has a nice roost and laying area but would rather be on that gate. I do not have heat in the barn and I do not keep lights on. Has anyone ever had this problem? Thanks for any help or advice in advance.
