    I have no electric in the coop its going to be 20 degrees tonight and my NHR has no feathers! Can I make her a sweater? Or will that prevent the new feathers from coming in?

    Hmmmmm just sticker' in the brooder wit the heat lamp if the brooders big enough. make her a sweater to wear during the day let her streak at night under her lamp. make shure you let her out during the day. Warm nights let her sleep with her buds.

    If you put her under the light without feathers better make sure she has on sun screen. If she's naked as a jay bird she'll get a nasty sun burn............how about a picture with the new sweater on?[​IMG]
