    I got my wyandottes 3 months ago. They are laying great. I get 2 dozen eggs a week from 4 chickens. One hen was missing her tail feathers when I got her. The other ones peck at her bald spot every once in a while. It's getting colder now and I'm wondering how long till she gets feathers back there and is there something I should do?
