My girls started to molt this fall. Egg production fell by 75% - I have 4 hens and was only getting one egg a day. Now it seems that the others aren't loosing as many feathers as before but my white hen Meringue, is loosing tons of feathers and they all seem to be coming from her chest. I can't see it being that the others are picking on her because she is the "boss". Do you think she's doing this to herself? They are now in their winter coop with a heat lamp and they are getting extra food. We've had a few 32 degree nights but no snow or anything - just cold enough for us here to provide them with heat. Is this normal? Should I be worried? Do you think my girls will start laying again when they stop molting? They just started laying a few days before Christmas last year. Any advice? Thanks, Barb.
