    May 31, 2009
    About 10 days ago we here in western CO went from a temperature of 34 degrees at night to -4 inside of 24 hours. My Buff Orp had just started moulting. This morning she's huddled in the corner absolutely wretched, and still not feathered.

    So, I brought her inside in a large cage. After she gets her feathers back, I'll put her back outside. The question is, how to reacclimate her?

  2. If it's not as cold in the day, you could leave her outside and then take her in at night. She could lose her place in the pecking order so..
